People at Dow harness the power of chemistry every day to make the world safer, cleaner and greener for generations to come.
For more than 100 years, chemistry has played an integral part in the growth of this region. The Delaware Valley has been the birthplace of solutions and home to some of the greatest minds in history. This is still true today.
Approximately 2,500 employees and contractors work at Dow in the Delaware Valley and play a significant role in innovative chemistry that betters our lives and contributes to the quality of life in the tri-state area and our local communities.
Across Dow's footprint in the Delaware Valley, research and development, manufacturing and commercial operations generate solutions in markets spanning acrylic technology for paints, coatings and construction, advanced polymers and technologies for home, institutional and personal care solutions, ingredients and delivery systems for pharmaceuticals and food, insulation used in homes and buildings and products used to fabricate electronic chips.
Dow is committed to improving life in the communities we serve, contributing more than $8 million to education, environmental and economic development community programs since 2010.
Dow’s commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve both globally, as well as locally in the Delaware Valley, is one that spans more than 100 years.
Embracing Dow’s 2025 Sustainability Goals, the Company’s community investments continue to go narrower and deeper, focusing on two commitment areas – Workforce Solutions and Community Solutions.
As a Company, we have set ambitious goals to develop breakthrough product innovations, positively impact the lives of 1 billion people, and applying a business decision process that values nature. We intend to reach our goals not only through financial investments, but through employee volunteerism and courageous collaborations focused on long-term impact.
