Our relationship with the city named after the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad began 35 years ago. In August 2007, we joined the Olin family. Located on Pike Street northeast of town, Olin’s Santa Fe Springs plant is a major producer of bleach, which plays a crucial role in food processing, water treatment and life-saving disinfectants that help protect our food from the farm to the fork.
We contribute to the local economy
There are 21 dedicated people who work at the plant. Olin spends almost $1 million annually with all sorts of local businesses, purchasing goods and services that support more than 75 local jobs. Olin Santa Fe Springs also pays $68,000 in annual taxes—taxes that go to schools, community services and development and to those in need.
We’re responsible to the community
As a corporate neighbor, it’s important that we add value to life in Santa Fe Springs. Adding value means giving of ourselves to worthwhile efforts in the community, whether it’s creating them or contributing to them. Olin Santa Fe Springs has monthly meetings and conducts a number of drills and safety exercises with the local fire department and emergency responders.
Santa Fe Springs is a great place to live
The city of Santa Fe Springs got its name in the 1800s when the Atchinson, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad came to town. The old Number 870 steam engine sits in Heritage Park. This early development was a sign of progress in this once rural setting, which was encircled by large citrus groves.
Today, Santa Fe Springs is a planned community with 100 acres of recreation space, 19 parks, and mile upon mile of green belts and parkways. About 12 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, it is home to 18,000 full-time residents and more than 90,000 business residents. At one time, it was home to one of the largest drive-in theaters in the country, with a capacity to hold more than 1,000 cars.
Not far from Whittier, California, where Richard Nixon, 37th president of the United States, attended college, Santa Fe Springs is a Gateway City to Southern California and has one of the highest concentrations of Starbucks of any city in the U.S.
Safety is one of our most important products
One of our main goals at the Olin Santa Fe Springs plant is a safe working and living environment for our employees and their families and our neighbors. Olin takes precautions to ensure that no employee or community resident is ever put at risk.
We go to great lengths to ensure the security of our operations and products in order to comply with chemical security requirements and ensure a safe operation.
We’ve been awarded for our efforts
That kind of performance has led to a number of environmental and safety awards like the Chlorine Institute’s Award for Outstanding Safety, which we received three years in a row. Olin Santa Fe Springs worked an extensive number of employee hours without an incident. The Santa Fe Springs mayor and the Los Angeles County Sanitation District also recognized the plant for its strict compliance with the US EPA and the county’s standards for industrial waste water discharge.
