Gov. John Carney released a statement Sept. 12 after DowDuPont Inc. announced it would move seven specialty product business units to Delaware.

“This is good news for Delaware and a recognition that our state has an experienced, world-class workforce that can help DowDuPont grow and thrive,” Carney said. “For our state, this will mean additional scientific research and innovation that will help power our economy, drive economic growth, and continue to support good-paying jobs. I am pleased that DowDuPont continues to invest in Delaware and look forward to a long and successful partnership with the combined company.”
