DowAksa was formed in June 2012, combining the strengths of Dow, as the world leader in epoxy chemistry and resins, and the capabilities of Aksa, the number one producer of acrylic fibers. The 50:50 joint venture offers high-quality, reliably supplied, competitively priced carbon fiber for industrial usage, focused on the transportation, energy and infrastructure markets. To better meet the needs of customers in the Americas, DowAksa USA was established on December 2, 2013.
