Rohm and Haas Internship Profile
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of specialty chemicals, Rohm and Haas has been churning out products for almost a century. Founded in Germany in 1907, the company set up shop in Philadelphia in 1909 and later became independent. The company has come a long way from its start in leather tanning chemicals; today it produces scores of chemicals and synthetics used behind the scenes in a myriad of consumer products. In fact, the firm serves nine major industries: building and construction, electronics, food, household goods and personal care, industrial and manufacturing, packaging and paper, pharmaceutical and medical, transportation and water. One Rohm and Haas product does go straight from source to shelf, though: Morton Salt (the fruit of a 1999 merger with Morton International). The Dow Chemical Company acquired Rohm and Haas on April 1, 2009.
