Dow Opens a Northeast Tech Center in Collegeville

Dow Chemical opened its new 800,000-square-foot Northeast Technology Center Innovation Hub this week.
The center serves as lab and office facility for more than 800 employees and contractors. It is one of the largest sites of its kind in Dow’s global network. Company officials said the new center will play a pivotal role for many businesses in Dow’s Advanced Materials portfolio, which is headquartered in Philadelphia.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett speaking to 700 Dow employees who attended Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting, said, "Today Dow is making clear that it is committed to Pennsylvania, as a place of business, as a center of research and development, and as a home of innovation. This tech center is part of something special happening all over our commonwealth. Businesses are coming here to become part of our economic comeback."
“The Northeast Technology Center is yet another example of Dow's continued commitment to innovation and collaboration,” added Andrew Liveris, Dow Chairman and CEO. “Working at the intersection of the sciences, Dow scientists and technologists are bridging the gap between chemistry and technology to develop solutions to some of the world's greatest challenges.”
Dow Chemical employs approximately 2,000 workers in the Delaware Valley. The company has started moving employees from its Spring House Technical Center to the NTC and will continue the transition through 2014.
