DowDuPont Picks Delaware Over Indiana For Company Headquarters
This really shouldn't come as a surprise. Dow Chemical and DuPont recently announced a merger. Indiana and Indianapolis officials thought they had a good chance at becoming the corporate headquarters for the combined companies. The company revealed today that Wilmington, Delaware, the current home to DuPont, will take that honor, beating out Indianapolis and Des Moines. Some job cuts are anticipated as a result of the merger. Wilmington has already lost 1,700 jobs, while DuPont Pioneer in Iowa has cut 175 workers in Iowa. No job cuts have been announced at Dow AgroSciences in Indianapolis yet.
