Dow To Hire Workers For Solar Shingles Plant 9-13-2010

The Dow Chemical Company announced the creation of 100 new, full-time jobs to support its new solar shingle production facility in Midland.
The initial wave of solar-related jobs at Dow's Michigan Operations will be in manufacturing, with hiring of qualified candidates expected to begin as early as the end of September.
The company said it worked closely with union officials to develop the criteria for these positions, and ensure the right skills were in place to support the anticipated 2011 market demands.
"We see this as a winning situation for Dow, the union and the community," said Kent Holsing, President United Steelworkers, Local 12075. "We are always looking to work together with the company to bring more jobs to the region including skilled solar manufacturing jobs."
Dow’s Powerhouse shingles can be installed on rooftops with standard asphalt shingle material; however, they also perform as solar panels.
The Dow Powerhouse solar shingle was named one of the “50 Best Inventions of 2009” by TIME magazine.
By 2014, the solar-related project is expected to bring about 1,200 news jobs to Mid-Michigan.
