Dow Corning Zhangjiagang Site

Site Introduction
Dow Corning (Zhangjiagang) Co, Ltd, is an integrated world-class manufacturing site that meets the rapidly-growing needs of businesses in China and other parts of Asia for silicon-based materials. Zhangjiagang is an integral part of Dow Corning’s network of more than 40 manufacturing sites worldwide. It is the company’s third manufacturing site for the production of siloxanes (basic silicone materials) which are used extensively by industries such as electronics, personal care, construction and energy.

The integrated site in Zhangjiagang comprises the Dow Corning siloxanes plant, Dow Corning silicone finishing plants and a fumed silica plant with our joint venture partner WACKER Chemie AG. Other facilities on the site are owned and operated separately by WACKER. The total investment for the joint venture projects is estimated to exceed 900 million U.S. dollars in the coming years. It is expected that full operational capacity will be phased in by the end of 2010.

The site is situated on 250 acres of the Zhangjiagang City Free Trade Zone industrial park in Jiangsu Province, China, which is a rapidly growing region approximately 2 hours from Shanghai. Its location on the Yangtze River provides excellent waterfront access for the export and import of materials and good quality of life for employees.

This is in line with Dow Corning’s commitment to the principles of Responsible Care® which we practice in all parts of the world.

Open Doors
In the spirit of developing mutual understanding, employees’ families and representatives of neighboring companies have been given an opportunity to visit the site and to hear about our progress and performance on environment, safety and health performance. We will continue to open our door to interested neighbors, to answer their questions and listen to their comments about our operations.

Support for Education
We also want to be a part of the Zhangjiagang community through involvement in activities that contribute to the well being of the local area. We consider children to be the future of our society and will look for opportunities to support education initiatives that help them fulfill their potential through science, math and technology.
