Dow Corning's site at Barry in the UK, is one of the company’s largest manufacturing facilities. Silicone production started in Barry in 1952, initially by Midland Silicones and then Dow Corning in 1971. Continued investment throughout the decades has made the Barry site one of the most advanced facilities in the world for the production of silicon-based materials. Today the site’s 500 plus employees manufacture and distribute high quality silicon-based materials to customers in Europe and other parts of the world. Silicone fluids, rubber and specialty polymers made in Barry are used in a wide variety of applications, from cosmetics to car airbag coatings and construction sealants.
