Dow in Switzerland

During the expansion to Europe in 1952, Dow chose Zurich as the location for its first European sales office. Today, Dow is represented by an ample network of production and sales offices in over 40 countries in the EMEAI region and contributed with annual sales of 14.6 billion in 2019 to Dow’s overall turnover. At our EMEAI-Headquarter in Horgen we employ people from over 48 countries focusing on Business Management, Marketing & Sales, Research & Development, Finance, HR, Law and Communications.

We consider inclusion and diversity as a source of competitive advantage. We welcome the differing experiences, backgrounds and perspectives our employees bring, and rely on those differences to fuel innovation. We are committed to building a vibrant, diverse and talented employee base, and invest in our employee’s growth and development as part of Dow's inclusive global community. In line with our commitment to community success, Dow builds on partnerships with local NGO’s and organizations that drive inclusion to benefit the greater community.

Dow Switzerland is among the Top 10 in the national Great Place To Work® competition. In 2015, Dow Switzerland received this coveted award for the second time. This award confirms the valued workplace culture, created jointly by our satisfied, loyal and very motivated employees.
