Manufacturers are working alongside YOU

We are proud to once again join industry peers across the country in celebrating Manufacturing Day – a Creators Wanted initiative presented by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the Manufacturing Institute. Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) provides a chance for students, parents, teachers and community leaders to learn more about the variety of exciting career opportunities available within modern manufacturing.

This year, we are also highlighting how manufacturers are working alongside communities and governments to address the world’s toughest challenges. In celebration of MFG Day, we are hosting series of virtual events throughout the month of October. These events will touch on how industry and Team Dow are working together to tackle global challenges and develop solutions that support the wellbeing of people & our planet.

Through innovation, manufacturing can help create a more sustainable world.

We openly collaborate with customers, communities, universities, governments, suppliers, brand owners and other value chain partners in pursuit of the next innovations for a sustainable future.
