About Odyssey Manufacturing Co.
Odyssey Manufacturing was incorporated in 1998 and began operations at its "state of the art" bleach manufacturing facility in Tampa, Florida in March of 2000. The manufacturing facility utilizes chlor-alkali technology for the production of bulk sodium hypochlorite. Odyssey's UltraChlor Sodium Hypochlorite is engineered to be a superior quality product and is manufactured at a concentration of 12.5 Trade Percent Available Chlorine. With an extensive fleet of tractors and tanker trailers. Odyssey is able to also provide bulk truckload deliveries to its customers. Odyssey also sells and installs chemical storage tanks, feed systems and on-site sodium hypochlorite generation (OSHG) equipment for those customers that elect to go with this option. Odyssey is uniquely positioned to service this equipment, provide backup sodium hypochlorite during maintenance periods and can even provide high quality salt out of our large indoor warehouse (in Tampa), which stores over 50,000 tons of salt.
Chlor-alkali technology has been used for years to produce chlorine and caustic out of salt and water utilizing an electrolysis process. Odyssey takes technology one step further by combining it with a Powell continuous bleach plant. Odyssey's process is superior in that it utilizes demineralized water and evaporated salt with membrane cell technology The result is a much purer grade of caustic and chlorine relatively free from impurities. The resulting chlorine and caustic is taken directly off the cells and combined in a Powell continuous bleach plant to produce a superior quality product. Of the handful of companies who employ this technology around the country. Odyssey's cell room has had the longest continuous operation in North America.
As a leading supplier of sodium hypochlorite to the industrial market and pool industry in the State of Florida, Odyssey Manufacturing Co. recently tripled its manufacturing capacity by signing a long-term deal with Olin Chemical, in 2018, to be their exclusive HyPure® sodium hypochlorite distributor for the State of Florida. HyPure® sodium hypochlorite has similar purity characteristics to Odyssey's Ultrachlor in that it is made from a chlor-alkali plant connected to a continuous sodium hypochlorite plant. Olin Chemical is the world's largest sodium hypochlorite supplier and this agreement with Odyssey provides Olin direct access to the largest sodium hypochlorite market in North America. This also provides significantly increased reliability to Odyssey's customer base.
