Adrien Bodere – Technology Manager

Dow opens career paths to young talents through many different roles, in my case as Technology Manager for Dow France.

My name is Adrien. I’m working as Technology Manager at Dow France in Chauny for the Ion Exchange Resin business for our Water & Process Solutions Business.

I am in charge of improving and developing chemical processes for the production of copolymer and pharmaceuticals resins. I studied at the ECPM – University of Strasbourg -- where I specialized in organic chemistry.

I joined Dow in June 2014 as part of the M&E Graduate program for EMEA after absolving an assessment center in Terneuzen (Netherlands). I began work in Chauny as an Improvement Engineer for logistics and packaging working a project for a new packaging unit rationalizing extra costs for our carriers. I was in contact with several people within maintenance, Tech Center, supply chain and production. When working on my projects, I discuss with operators and gate keepers in order to bring the most suitable solutions in terms of productivity and ergonomics as well.

I chose Dow because it offers a large and open career path to young talents through many different roles, in my case within Maintenance & Engineering, Research & Development or Technical Sales & Development.
