The Dow Chemical Company announced that it is creating 50 new highly skilled information technology (IT) jobs in Michigan. Based in Saginaw, Midland and Southfield, the new roles will add considerable muscle to the Company's IT Center of Excellence, supporting Dow's activities across the globe.

“Information technology is the lifeblood of business success at Dow, and the Center of Excellence we're building here in Michigan keeps it flowing,” says Dave Kepler, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer.

“For that reason, we're looking to fill these positions with Michigan's most talented IT professionals … highly skilled, enthusiastic individuals we want to be part of this exciting team and help to create the next generation of Dow's global information systems.”

“To hear that Dow is bringing these highly skilled jobs to our state is exciting news,” says Governor Jennifer M. Granholm. “We are counting on companies like Dow to continue to grow, which, in turn, gives our regional and state economies a much-needed boost.”

In late 2007, Dow moved nearly 200 employees and third party-suppliers to a new Information Technology center in Saginaw. The move to the Dow State Street Center brought together team members from a variety of functions, all working on common projects.

The company hopes that co-locating team members from Finance, Purchasing, Manufacturing, Information Systems and other areas will allow them to actively work together to make faster, more effective decisions.

Dow's IT organization is an accelerator of growth within the company delivering a large volume of new technology needed for running a global and mobile workforce. ITs strategy is closely aligned with Dow's corporate strategy to ensure business success, profitability and cost advantages.
