Ecolab, Inc. (NYSE: ECL); headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota is a global provider of water, hygiene and energy technologies and services to the food, energy, healthcare, industrial and hospitality markets. It was originally founded as Economics Laboratory in 1923 by Merritt J. Osborn, and renamed to Ecolab in 1986.
Ecolab delivers comprehensive programs and services that provide and protect clean water, safe food, abundant energy and healthy environments in more than 160 countries. The company stock is a component of the Standard and Poor's 500 index.
The origins of Ecolab Inc. traces to 1923, when Merritt J. Osborn founded Economics Laboratory, a specialty chemical manufacturer. Its first product was a rug cleaner for hotels; and one of its prominent product was Soilax, a chemical detergent for mechanical dishwashers. During the 1930s, it expanded throughout the United States; and the sales reached US$5.4 million by the end of 1940's. It acquired the Magnus Company in the early 1950s, which gave the company access to Magnus's industrial specialty businesses - including pulp and paper, metalworking, transportation, and petrochemical processing.
In the 1950s, international expansion of Economics Laboratory started, with the establishment of its first overseas subsidiary in Sweden in 1956. It became a publicly traded corporation in 1957, and continued to expand during the 1960s and 1970s. In 1979, it acquired Apollo Technologies; but in 1983, the acquired Apollo subsidiary was shut down.
In 1986, the company changed its name from Economics Laboratory to Ecolab Inc.
In 1987, Ecolab purchased the lawncare servicer provider, ChemLawn for US$376 million. It sold the acquisition in 1992 to Service Master, for US$103 million as it couldn't turn ChemLawn into a profitable business. Ecolab and the German FMCG firm, Henkel KGaA formed a 50:50 European joint venture called 'Henkel-Ecolab' in mid 1991 to expand into European/Russian markets.
