Dow Automotive, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Co., has announced the consolidation of its North American production of glass-bonding adhesives, primers and sealers to a new, soon-to-be-constructed facility in Midland, MI. "In order to optimize efficiencies, we had to make some decisions to either implement site improvements at existing facilities or consider production consolidation," stated George Hamilton, president of Dow Automotive. "Asset optimization reviews have determined that consolidation will maximize value for our customers and enable us to maintain our position as the world's largest producer of adhesives and sealers for the transportation industry. To underscore its commitment to provide high-quality products and services to the automotive industry, Dow Chemical is supporting the consolidation strategy with an investment of over $100 million to locate this new facility in the company's hometown of Midland. The project has also been approved by the City of Midland and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).
