Dow founded the company to supplement the operations of his other two businesses at the time which were the Midland Chemical Company and the Dow Process Company. The first operation of the Dow Chemical company were the manufacturing of bleach to make use of the bromine extraction waste products made by the Midland Chemical Company. After successfully making bleach, the company began extracting chemicals such as chlorides, magnesium, and calcium from brine deposits sourced locally in Michigan.

In 1900 the Dow Chemical Company incorporated and assumed all property held by the Midland company. The Dow Chemical company played a role producing munitions for America's role in fighting World War I by switching its production focus to phenol, magnesium, and mustard gas. The company continued supporting the American military during the Vietnam War by producing napalm and Agent Orange for the war effort.
