Dow AgroSciences has announced plans for a multi-year expansion of its global headquarters in northwestern Indianapolis, with the investment of more than $340 million and the addition of more than 550 scientific and commercial jobs over the next five years.
The first phase in the multiyear expansion plan includes the construction of a 175,000-square-foot research and development building, as well as a 14,000-square-foot greenhouse on the company's corporate campus. These facilities are part of a global growth plan for Dow AgroSciences' research efforts as it develops and commercializes new product solutions for customers in agricultural and related market segments.
"Indiana's excitement and dedication for the life sciences is impressive and matches our own enthusiasm to deliver innovation for our customers as we make a difference in agriculture," says Antonio Galindez, president and CEO of Dow AgroSciences. "When you combine our infrastructure and capabilities with this positive business environment, it is a winning proposition to expand and grow our global headquarters here in order to accelerate our growth strategy. We especially thank the leaders of the city and state for their support."
