O.I. Corporation (“OI”) was organized in 1963 in accordance with the Business Corporation Act of the State of Oklahoma under the name Clinical Development Corporation (CDC), a building contractor for medical and research enterprises. In 1969, CDC changed its name to Oceanography International Corporation (“OIC”) and moved its headquarters to College Station where it changed its focus to oceanography equipment. This led to OIC’s production of water-quality measurement instrumentation, as oceanography equipment sales declined. In 1969, O.I. Corporation developed the Company’s first TOC analyzer. Since that time, the Company has become recognized worldwide as a provider of quality analytical instrumentation. The Company changed its name to O.I. Corporation in 1980.
