JEFFERSON COUNTY – Dow Chemical Co. in Beaumont cleared a major hurdle in expanding its plant.

The Jefferson County Commissioners Court approved a six-year property tax abatement agreement between the county and Dow.

David Winder, director of Texas public affairs and government affairs for Dow​ said the abatement would allow the company to modernize its Beaumont worksite on Hwy. 347 by building a new control room, offices and associated equipment for the manufacture of products.

“We appreciate the commissioners court taking this step today,” Winder said. “We will retain 60 jobs and create 200 construction jobs. It’s a $109 million project.”
