Midland County and none of its local units are dues paying member of EMCOG.
Midland County is best known as the home of Dow Chemical and Dow Corning, the international chemical giant. Because of this it has the largest number of engineers, chemists and metallurgists per capita than any other U.S. county, which has spurred the creation of several subsidiary industries, such as the manufacture of solar panels. Encouraged by both the federal and state mandates for “green energy”, this has spurred a manufacturing “mini-boom” in the Region. Midland is also very much an agricultural community. US-10 cuts diagonally across the county, while M-20 cuts east and west.
