Dow Biocides and the Angus Chemical Company are to introduce five
regional customer application canters around the world.

Owned by the Dow Chemical Company, the two firms said the move is designed to align their business growth strategies with direct market and customer focus.

The new centers, expected to be operational by the end of the year, will be opened in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Tokyo, Japan; Guangzhou, China; and Prune, India.

Angus and Dow Biocides already have established centers in Horgen, Switzerland, Singapore and Shanghai, China, as well as a global business and technology development location in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

"Helping customers solve their individual challenges is the main drive for our new business organization,"​ said Mark Henning, general manager for Dow Biocides and Chief executive officer and general manager for Angus.

"We will continue to offer access to our global processes and technologies, but with the added benefit of local implementation, combining our specialty knowledge of the additives and biocides industries with an understanding of the specific requirements in each region, and utilizing focused resources who understand the needs of each market,"​ he added.

According to the company, each facility will house a full laboratory, including its patented Taunovatesm high throughput microbial testing and challenge testing capabilities.

Dow Biocides and Angus also said they have restructured its marketing and sales forces to reflect their business objectives. The new "streamlined"​ structure means that marketing efforts no longer overlap between businesses.

In cosmetics, Dow Biocides products are used in hair care, eye area, lotions, creams, sun tanning, and baby care formulas to prevent the growth of microorganisms both in the unopened product and while the formulation is in use.
