Ashland Inc. is moving their headquarters and approximately 100 jobs to Brandywine, Delaware. The new headquarters will be located at an already existing office campus in Brandywine Springs.
The 94-year-old company is expecting to move by January 1, 2020. Ashland’s upcoming relocation will be Delaware Prosperity Partnership’s first major accomplishment since announcing their new CEO, William Kurt Foreman.
“There wasn’t a lot of selling involved because they already were familiar with Delaware,” Foreman said. “It was more about being ready with the information they were looking for to help them make their decision.”
Delaware was ranked the 5th best state in the U.S. to launch a business in 2016, according GoBankingRates.com.
