Dow AgroSciences Building Seeds Facility in West Lafayette, Indiana
Located in the Purdue Research Park, the lab will support Dow's expanding AgroSciences Seeds business and help the company develop next-generation technologies. The new facility will allow for additional testing technologies, future expansions, and collaboration with scientists at Dow AgroSciences' Indianapolis headquarters.
Dow will offer all current quality control lab workers in Marshalltown, Iowa, the opportunity to work at the new Indiana lab. The company expects to complete the relocation in the first quarter of 2012.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation has extended a $2.2 million grant to the Purdue Research Foundation to help Dow build a new, 11,000-square-foot greenhouse at the site. The company will also build a 15,000-square-foot R&D space.
