Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership Council recently gave The Dow Chemical Co. five Manufacturing Leadership awards. The awards reportedly honor “companies and individuals that are shaping the future of global manufacturing.”

Based on the submitted project nominations, cross-industry judges honored Dow in three categories: New Product Leadership, Big Data and Advanced Analytics Leadership, and Customer Value Leadership. In addition, Timothy Scott, corporate director, emergency services and security; and Don Taylor, vice president, manufacturing and engineering, were recognized in the category of Visionary Leadership.

“These awards are a testament to Dow’s leadership in manufacturing innovation, our ability to develop collaborative solutions with customers and our advanced analytical abilities, all of which help drive our industry leadership and profitability,” said Peter Holicki, senior vice president, operations. “I am also honored to have two of our longstanding leaders recognized with such prestigious awards for their contributions both to Dow and the industry.”

Dow AgroSciences Arylex ™ Herbicide Project – Dow AgroSciences developed a new synthetic herbicide, Arylex™ active ingredient for use in formulations that control broadleaf weeds in the global cereals market, as well as other crops. The low dosage rates required for Arylex™ result in significant benefits including a low environmental load of the herbicide with rapid degradation in soil and tolerant plant tissue allowing for crop rotation flexibility.
