History of the Park

The West Virginia Regional Technology Park comes with an illustrious history of innovation. The Park opened in 1949 as the Union Carbide Corporation Technology Center and became Union Carbide’s largest research and development center. An estimated 3,000 scientists and engineers worked on campus and developed more than 30,000 patented discoveries, valued at approximately $18 billion.

After Union Carbide merged with The Dow Chemical Company in 2001, the company allowed other tenants to move on campus as well. In 2010, Dow Chemical donated the 258-acre park to the state of West Virginia.

Today, the Tech Park, owned by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission and operated by the West Virginia Regional Technology Park Corporation, is the newest research, education and technology asset in the state’s portfolio. The West Virginia Regional Technology Park continues to generate new thinking, new ideas and new opportunities.
