145-Year History as a Leading Supplier of Boron
Since the discovery of borates in California’s Death Valley in 1881, U.S. Borax has come a long way. Over our 145-year history as a leading supplier of boron, many things have changed. Today, the boron we mine is used in everything from soap (sold through partnership with Henkel Dial) to fertilizers to cell phone glass.
In celebration of this historic icon’s 145th anniversary, a full-scale, authentic, working replica of the wagons rode in the 2017 Rose Parade. Construction of the replica wagons took nearly two years, to ensure their authenticity and capability.
But one thing never changes: Our innovative spirit and commitment to our customers, employees, and community.
