The pharmaceutical multinational Hoffmann-LaRoche employs a dowser whenever it sites new factories. When asked to comment on this in the 1980s a company spokesperson Dr Peter Treadwell said: 'We use methods which are profitable, whether they are scientifically explainable or not. The dowsing method pays off'.

Open-minded big businesses use dowsing. Hoffman-La Roche, one of the largest global pharmaceutical companies in the world, has used dowsing to locate water for its new plants. La Roche needs large quantities of good water to process the chemicals into drugs. A company magazine quoted Dr. Peter Treadwell as saying, “Roche uses methods that are profitable, whether they are scientifically explainable or not.”
