Dow AgroSciences plans to expand its global headquarters in northwest Indianapolis, with investment of more than $340 million and the addition of more than 550 scientific and commercial jobs over the next five years. Company executives were joined by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard to announce the expansion plans at a news conference last week.
The first phase in the multi-year 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.
