Since 1948, ORR Corporation has dedicated itself to protecting people, property, and the environment through its family of companies. The businesses ORR Safety, ORR Protection, and InspectionLogic have been the sole focus of this corporation from the beginning.
The ORR Corporation began in 1948 when Clark Orr, Sr. began selling industrial safety products from the trunk of his car. Nearly 70 years later, our family-owned company is still building upon the hard work of its founder—dedicated to providing protection for people, property, and the environment through ORR’s three divisions:
- ORR Safety
Since its inception in 1948, ORR Safety has been passionate about protecting workers—providing people with equipment and services for all aspects of industrial safety, occupational health, industrial hygiene, and fire protection. As a distributor representing over 600 industry-leading manufacturers, we have proven programs for your business.
- ORR Protection Systems
In 1971, ORR expanded beyond safety distribution to establish one of America’s first fire suppression companies. Specializing in custom fire protection for mission critical business processes, some of the largest and most successful companies in the world trust ORR with their property.
In 1991, ORR applied its passion for protection to the environment. Through the development of information technology for fugitive emissions optimization and management, ORR became the leader in LDAR software for reducing harmful air emissions.
A family-owned company since 1948, the ORR Corporation is proud of where we come from and proud of how far we’ve come. We have a large family of associates—many of whom have been with the company for years—with stories that shape who we are and how we’ve grown over the years.
Historically, ORR has had a strong connection between the ownership (Bud) and the Associates. It was not uncommon for Bud to know they names of Associate’s children. This aspect of our culture still exists today in intimate pockets within the ORR Corporation blanket.
ORR places a great emphasis on treating all associates with respect and fairness. We seek to eliminate hierarchies and foster a collaborative environment where anyone can grow and succeed. We use the word “associate” instead of “employee” because we like to think of ORR as a place where everyone works together toward a common goal.
Our associates are the reason that ORR remains a “family” company with high workplace satisfaction. We wanted to shine a spotlight on just a few of the many amazing people that consistently make ORR one of the Best Places to Work.
