On the Doorstep of Advancement

Ideas and technology are the building blocks for innovation and transformation. That’s why I wanted to dedicate this issue to the Dow Michigan Operations I-Park. The power of what we have here in the Great Lakes Bay region is astonishing.

  • Dow, a global company with headquarters in Michigan, has been a leader of change and advancement, serving as a catalyst for the advancement of the Great Lakes Bay region for more than 120 years.
  • In 2017, Dow merged with DuPont with the intention to separate into three independent publicly traded companies.On April 1, 2019, DowDuPont successfully completed the spin-off of its Materials Science division, Dow. The separation of Corteva was completed on June 3, 2019. Dow, DuPont and Corteva Agriscience will each have its own clear focus, scale advantages, and an enhanced ability to deliver superior solutions and choices to customers.
  • Each of the three new companies has a presence at the Dow Michigan Operations I-Park. Additional tenants include SK Saran Americas, Trinseo and Cabot.


The Dow Michigan Operations I-Park will stand as an epicenter for future innovation that will only serve to strengthen the global prominence of the Great Lakes Bay region.

These companies will not only solidify our economic foundations in the area, they will raise our region’s profile as a statewide hub of scientific manufacturing that brings improvements around the globe. The Dow Michigan Operations I-Park is an invaluable community partner in endeavors that improve the quality of life for our local residents. It’s an exciting time for the Great Lakes Bay region. Our backyard provides a gateway to worldwide advancements.
