Location: Saint Gabriel, LA

Company Profile:
Founded by Franklin Olin in 1892, Olin Industries began as a blasting powder company, supplying powder to Midwestern coal fields. The company's success soon prompted its expansion into small arms ammunition and the formation of the Western Cartridge Company in 1898. Olin Industries went on to play a critical supply role in U.S. defense during World Wars I and II. By the 1950s, Olin Industries had expanded into a wide range of businesses, including brass and other nonferrous alloys, arms and ammunition, explosives, cellophane, cigarette and fine papers, construction fastening systems and forest products. The Olin Corporation is the result of a 1954 merger of Olin Industries and Mathieson Chemical Corporation. Although both companies were founded in the same year, over 100 years ago, and had complimentary manufacturing businesses with similar philosophies, they produced very different products.
