Dow Water Solutions and Rohm and Haas Ion Exchange Resins have combined their
respective businesses, forming Dow Water & Process Solutions, a business unit of The
Dow Chemical Company (Dow). This new business entity, based in Edina, Minn., comes
as a result of Dow's acquisition of Rohm and Haas, which was completed April 1.
"This is a great day for our customers, employees and partners," said Ian Barbour, general
manager, Dow Water & Process Solutions. "Through a broad portfolio of water and
process solutions, and expanded capabilities to meet the needs of our customers, Dow
Water & Process Solutions has solidified its status as an industry leader in the
marketplace. As we look to the future our business will provide customers, in both
communities and industries alike, innovative technology offerings supported by a global
network of experts."
Dow is already the world's largest manufacturer of reverse osmosis membranes. The
addition of Rohm and Haas also solidifies Dow Water & Process Solutions as the industry
leader in ion exchange resins. The larger scale of Dow Water & Process Solutions will
improve the business' ability to invest in the innovative research and technology required to
provide reliable, high-quality products and services to drive improved operational
efficiencies in a number of major application areas, including industrial and municipal
water, industrial processes, pharmaceuticals, power, residential water and waste and
water reuse.
Added Barbour, "We have worked tirelessly over the past several months to position the
combined company for a seamless integration so that Dow Water & Process Solutions
can immediately and fully deliver on our customers' expectations."
By combining Rohm and Haas' significant process and application experience in ion
exchange resins with Dow's best-in-class enabling component technologies and industry
leadership position, this new integrated organization will offer customers a broader portfolio
of solutions than either company could provide previously.
