Stephen Davison is the founder and President of Clean Control Corporation. The company, headquarted in Warner Robins, Georgia, manufactures OdoBan® The Original Odor Eliminator since 1980, as well as multiple high quality cleaning, deodorizing and specialty products for families and industry professionals worldwide under the brands Earth Choice®, Lethal® and Pets Rule™.
Clean Control is a small, locally-owned business, employing in excess of 100 employees. The company’s various products are distributed through independent retailers, national chains including Sam’s Club, Walmart, and The Home Depot as well as online outlets such as Amazon.com, HDSupplySolutions.com, Grainger.com and more.
At the age of twenty-four, Davison started Mobile Wash of America (MWA), a successful government contractor with a focus on cleaning industrial equipment. Escalating chemical costs and the need for superior products led Davison on a mission to develop technologically advanced, cost-effective cleaning solutions. In the spring of 1980, OdoBan® The Original Odor Eliminator, was developed to meet the challenges in nursing homes. In 1980, there were few commercial products available that could get rid of odors from bed pans, soiled bed linen and night gowns. Colostomy bag odors and the 'Cancer smell' associated with patient rooms were an entire category all unto themselves. Extensive research on these specific human biological odors would eventually lead to the Lethal product line (see below).
The unique qualities of OdoBan® - performance, multi-use, environmental safety and signature eucalyptus fragrance - truly became the four cornerstones upon which a new company would be formed. After selling his janitorial business, Davison established Clean Control, introducing a revolutionary product line evolving from the overwhelming popularity of OdoBan®, Davison’s flagship product.
Starting as a small business, the basic corporate philosophy has always been to go one step further. By taking that extra step, Clean Control provides the very best available every time. "We didn’t just make a deodorizer we developed an odor eliminator and disinfectant that cleans. We didn’t just make something to mop up grease, we developed bacterial solutions that would eliminate grease, which was the basis for our bacterial line," says Davison. It’s the extra step that not only keeps customers coming back but also results in customers recommending Clean Control products to their clientele and colleagues.
The OdoBan® brand of products is recognized worldwide as a leading solution for odor elimination and disinfecting. Thus, Clean Control’s customer base has grown to serve various market segments which, today, includes household consumers as well as wholesale, industrial, commercial, and institutional customers around the globe. This market diversity is a tremendous testament to the quality and effectiveness of Clean Control’s product lines.
The pioneering work done for the nursing home industry that launched OdoBan, was the catalyst for a patented human scent elimination product that came out in 1995. Originally it was called OdoBan Outdoor. Made in small hand batches, the poplularity grew by word of mouth. Our philosophy was, "We are so good at eliminating odors, we can make you disappear." By 2009, the small hand made batches had turned into a full production run. OdoBan Outdoor needed it’s own identity. In 2010, Clean Control launched the LETHAL® ProHunter brand, a product line of human scent elimination products for professional hunters and enthusiasts.
Early 2013, the company plans to launch their newest brand, Pets Rule™, a complete line of pet cleaning, disinfecting and spot repair products for pet lovers and breeders.
Davison attributes the company’s ongoing growth to his Christian beliefs as well as his passion to provide innovative products for the industry. He continues to play an active role in day-to-day operations as well as product sales and marketing for the business. Clean Control’s capabilities include manufacturing/shipping, distribution/logistics, marketing and promotional packaging, graphics, POS and display services for all product lines.
Clean Control Corporation research and development has always been built upon the foundation of high performance products that meet customer expectations without harming people, property or the environment through the innovation of processes, products, organization and marketing. Therefore, our team is dedicated to producing effective products using the safest chemicals possible while complying with environmental, safety and health regulations.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows safer products to carry the Design for the Environment (DfE) label. The DfE logo allows consumers to quickly identify and choose products that help protect the environment and are safer for people.
August of 2005, Clean Control received recognition from DfE for their first Green product, later launching the first complete line of Green products to be offered to the public, now known as Earth Choice®. November of 2008, the EPA recognized Clean Control as a Champion Partner, which is the highest award offered by the EPA, in the Safer Detergent Stewardship Initiative.
February of 2012, Clean Control earned the Green Seal certification for 5 of their Earth Choice® products, forming a dual partnership with DfE and Green Seal.
