Located in Henderson, Nevada, near Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam, the Henderson plant began operation in 1942. The original plant was built as part of an effort to supply magnesium to the U.S. government to support World War II. The entire plant was upgraded and rebuilt in 1976. Henderson joined the Olin family in August 2007. Not only is Olin Henderson the closest chlor alkali plant to the southern California area, but as water demand grows with the population, the facility is ideally situated to serve the growing water treatment market.

Safety is one of our most important products
One of our main goals at the Olin Henderson plant is a safe working and living environment for our people, their families and our neighbors. Olin takes precautions to ensure that no employee or community resident is ever put at risk. Since 2008, Olin Henderson has invested more than $25 million in plant improvements. This coming year we are investing $40 million to expand our bleach production capability and to replace the existing equipment that produces hydrochloric acid with new upgraded equipment. Plus, the Henderson plant recycles all its process water, making the plant one of two chlor alkali plants in North America with zero process discharge.
