Dow Corning, one of the world’s largest silicon-based materials developers and manufacturers, has established a Middle East headquarters and commercial entity in Manama, Bahrain. The company’s Bahrain operations will help Dow Corning provide the region’s vibrant construction, textiles, petrochemical and oil and gas industries with silicon-based materials and solutions.
