INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): DuPont and the Dow Chemical Company today announced the U.S. site structure for the global agriculture leader the companies intend to create following the planned separation of DowDupont into three independent, publicly traded companies.
The corporate headquarters for the Agriculture company will be located in Wilmington, Delaware, and will include the office of the CEO and key corporate support functions. Sites in Indianapolis and Johnston, Iowa, will also serve as Global Business Centers, with leadership of business lines, business support functions, R&D, global supply chain, and sales and marketing capabilities concentrated in the two Midwest locations.
“Dow and DuPont have played integral roles in shaping the success of Indiana’s economy, and we are proud that Indiana will play a key role in their new future,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Hoosier farmers have driven innovation in agriculture that radiates throughout the state, advancing research, growth and job creation across industries like life sciences and technology. I’m grateful for the confidence that Dow and DuPont have placed in our people and for the collaboration with city officials that made this exciting announcement possible.”
The Agriculture company will be the largest of its kind globally. A significant portion of the company will be based in Indiana.
