Corporate History and Milestones:
Oil-Dri Corporation of America was established in 1941 when Nick Jaffee, the company's founder, introduced clay floor absorbents to the factories and garages that were using sawdust to soak up oil and grease on floors. With this first sale of Oil-Dri floor absorbent, Nick began a business, founded an industry and helped create a cleaner, safer work environment.
Since then Oil-Dri has grown from a distributor of a single product into a vertically integrated developer, manufacturer and marketer of products for a variety of markets. The company's product lines have been diversified by leveraging the qualities of its extensive mineral reserves and knowledge of its markets with a creative product development program and innovative manufacturing teams. The company's Innovation Center in Vernon Hills, IL is the source of some of the finest mineral research in the industry. The company is committed to innovative product development, which is the driving force behind the continued growth of the company.
