^ ^ J U tnat makes Olinamore dependable source for chlor/alkali.
Johanne is Olin's product distribution coordinator. She sees to it that our sophisticated new chlor/ alkali computer program does its job: smooth the path of 1.3 million tons of chlorine and caustic soda from our five plants and 12 shipping points to you.
Only a computer could balance the complex forces of the chlor/ alkali market. Chlorine can't be stored, so it must be made to order. But caustic, itscoproduct, marches to the beat of a different demand. Chlor/alkali production must be scheduled for best use of raw materials and energy. Plant capacities must be matched with available tank cars. And on and on, into the sunset.
So, if only to preserve our sanity, we conjured up a computer program that gives us a farsighted look at the effects of near-term needs. From continual evaluation of in
formation from many sources, it tells us how much product to make, and where. And the program lets us simulate anything from unpleasant surprises to outright disasters -so we'll know how to handle them should they arise.
All this looking ahead that Johanne and others do for us augurs well for dependable chlor/alkali for you. Isn't that the kind of supplier who can do the most for your planning?
