United Kingdom

Dow’s journey in the UK began over 118 years ago in 1897 – starting as a one product business in bleach and chemicals it quickly diversified. In the following years Dow made a commitment to basic research and this set the foundation for the company that we know today.

During the post-war period – Dow went through a period of increased product innovation and offerings were widened to serve the post-war consumer. During this time it also expanded globally and started to become a household name, having a global reach and forging a sustainable path to continued growth.

The UK is of significant importance to Dow as it is home to eight of Dow’s primary customers. Dow has approximately 460 employees in this region spread across seven offices which are located in Belfast in Ireland, Dewsbury and Birch Vale in the North of England, Milton Park in the West, King’s Lynn and Cambridge in the East and the headquarters in Staines in the South East of England.

The company makes a variety of products including crop protection, building and construction materials and monomers. It also has an established offering in producing packaging and specialty plastics.

Today the Dow UK vision is simple – it strives to be the partner of choice for science-driven solutions in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The mission for the company also has a clear aim; its expertise and reputation in science and technology drive the company forward as it builds on its heritage and grows its business.

Dow’s success comes from its values which are paramount – integrity, a respect for people and protecting our planet.
