In the war on COVID-19, Dow supplied armaments to the front lines. The company’s plants—it has 109 manufacturing sites across 31 countries—churned out plastics and chemicals crucial in making personal protective equipment and virus-slaying sanitizers. After producing and donating 100,000 face shields to the state of Michigan, Dow made its designs publicly available for download. The company pumped out more than 880,000 eight-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer per week during the pandemic. Dow also designed, manufactured, and donated thousands of hospital gowns and air purifiers to hospitals, and, in recognition of its employees’ efforts, it awarded $1,000 bonuses to approximately 8,200 workers who kept the lights on at its U.S. factories. “Our leadership insured we helped the community with PPE,” one proud worker says.
