About Dow Benelux and Dow Terneuzen
The story of Dow Benelux starts in 1955 with the opening of a trading office in Rotterdam. Today, the Benelux area (the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg) covers seven Dow sites: two in the Netherlands (Terneuzen and Delfzijl), and five in Belgium (Antwerp, Brussels, Tertre, Zwijndrecht and Seneffe). Dow in Terneuzen is the second largest integrated production site of Dow worldwide and plays an important role in the development and production of basic chemicals. Our three naphtha crackers convert crude oil into ethylene, propylene, benzene, and butadiene, from which over 800 different products are being created. Our state-of-the-art research facilities at Terneuzen are Dow Benelux’ main innovation platforms where key partnerships between our scientists, business developers and customers are being established. Furthermore, the site offers international services to the Dow businesses in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, such as logistics, customer service, finance, and human resources.
