Dow AgroSciences expands global HQ
Dow AgroSciences is investing more than $340 million in the expansion of its US global headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. It plans to construct a 175,000 sq ft (16,260 m 2) research and development building and a 14,000 sq ft greenhouse at the site. The expansion will involve the creation of over 550 scientific and commercial jobs over the next five years, the company points out. Last year, it leased an 80,000 sq ft building on a nearby campus to provide research space for some 100 scientists ( Agrow No 574, p 5).
