As Dow and DuPont merge the agricultural spin will maintain its headquarters in Wilmington.
In addition, the Wilmington News Journal reports that a yet unnamed specialty products company will also locate its headquarters in the Delaware town.
This will keep some high-level executive jobs in the state.
The News Journal reports that the Securities and Exchange Commission says more revenue is expected to come from the two companies than DuPont.
The paper reports that combined the two companies are expected to be valued at $32 billion.
That’s more than the $25 billion for DuPont in 2014.
Governor Jack Markell praised the news noting the loss of these jobs would have been troublesome.
