Dow announced its expanded investment in MobilityScience capabilities by opening the doors of its first European MobilityScience Studio in Correggio, Reggio Emilia, Italy, marking its long-term commitment to the mobility industry as it continues to transform and grow. The new studio will allow Dow to further collaborate with Tiers and OEMs on-site and beyond, growing its existing innovative solutions.

In expanding its presence in Italy, the studio will support Dow’s research and development and technical services and development engineers in focusing on new sustainable solutions within the mobility market and others, paving the way for new ecosystem collaborations in Europe. On 13 and 14 April, Dow opened its studio’s doors for the first time to select customers in conjunction with the 2024 Misano E-Prix.

“Dow is thrilled to commemorate the opening of the first MobilityScience innovation studio in Europe,” said Ryan Smith, global marketing director for Dow MobilityScience. “This investment in Correggio, Italy will serve as a hub for Dow’s technical and commercial experts to connect with the European mobility industry and drive forward the necessary investments to ensure global success in the burgeoning EV market,” he continued. “Electrification is the future of mobility and Dow’s unique breath of chemistry knowledge will provide much of the toolbox needed by our global partners in mobility.”

The Correggio studio will be the third of Dow’s state-of-the-art MobilityScience facilities. The existing MobilityScience Studios, located in Midland, Michigan and Lake Jackson, Texas, offer collaborative workspaces for acoustic and powertrain testing capabilities for fast-moving automotive applications. Through these studios, Dow is able to create tailor-made noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and sealing, powertrain and fluid transfer system options unique to any specifications.
