MATRIC helping former Dow researchers find jobs

By Scott Finn   

Last week, Dow Company announced it would eliminate 150 high-paying jobs in Kanawha County. These researchers were paid, on average, about $100,000 a year. They also are important civic leaders in the Kanawha Valley. 

But a non-profit called Mid-Atlantic Technology, Research and Innovation Center, or MATRIC, is trying to keep some of those researchers in West Virginia. They’ve set up operations in Dow’s research park in South Charleston. Already, they’ve created 75 research jobs, working for both government and private contractors. 

Reporter Scott Finn spoke yesterday with the head of MATRIC, Keith Pauley, about whether MATRIC can fill at least part of the void being left by Dow.
