Dow Corning opens new business and tech centre in Singapore
Scott Fuson, President, ASEAN/ANZ, Dow Corning.

SINGAPORE: Dow Corning inaugurated its new business and technology centre (BTC) in Singapore. The centre is a step towards Dow’s sustained efforts to meet growing customer needs for silicone products and services in emerging economies of ASEAN/ANZ. The facility will provide latest R&D support for innovation and sustainability initiatives throughout this fast-growing region.

The increasing regional needs for sustainability through silicone innovation necessitated Dow Corning to establish a BTC, which would be unique to the region. The ASEAN/ANZ region consists of Dow Corning’s presence in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, The Philippines, Vietnam; and Australia and New Zealand. Located in Solaris Fusionopolis, Singapore’s R&D hub for physical sciences and engineering in western Singapore, the BTC was designed to reflect Dow Corning’s commitment to sustainability and innovation.

“The BTC would enable us to extend our current product and service offerings as well as provide required support and expertise to meet innovation needs. Our lab facility at the BTC will not only be involved in the applications development but would also serve as the innovation centre for all regional requirements,” said Scott Fuson, President, ASEAN/ANZ, Dow Corning.
