Ecolab was founded in 1923 by Merritt J. Osborn developed a new product, Absorbit, which cleaned carpets on the spot and eliminated the need for hotels to shut down while their carpets were being cleaned. He called his new company Economics Laboratory (EL), reflecting its mission to save customers time, labor and money with "economic" solutions developed through "laboratory" research.
