In the Beginning

After being discharged from military service following World War II, company founders, Kern Hamilton and Jim Black, began selling agricultural and industrial process chemicals to various manufacturers. This led to the manufacture of sodium bisulfate (SBS) which was used in toilet bowl cleaners Vanish® and Sani-Flush®. SBS quickly became the core product of Jones-Hamilton Co.

SBS quickly gained strength in the marketplace as a dry, mineral acid that is very safe to use and capable of handling both simple and complex pH management requirements that are necessary in managing air and water environmental needs.

During the mid 1980s, Jones Hamilton began to explore the use of SBS to control the volatilization of ammonia in poultry litter. With a technically-oriented sales approach, the proprietary application of SBS, now named PLT® Poultry Litter Treatment, was introduced to growers and integrators as an easy-to-apply and affordable solution.

Ongoing research through numerous academic and private research institutions began to extend product applications of SBS to satisfy other needs in turkey production, broiler and turkey processing (SAS®), pH water treatment for water acidification (LS-PWT), dairy bedding and footbaths (ParlorPal) and animal feed (AFG). In all of these applications the fundamental benefit is the management of air or water to improve the quality of the environment of the animal, usually expressed as the control of pH, or in the internal digestion of a feed ingredient.

Sustainability in Poultry Production and Beyond

Partners at every level of poultry production are facing the complex task of balancing the need to increase production to fulfill growing demand while also satisfying corporate profitability requirements and the public’s demand for environmentally sustainable practices. Sustainability, defined as the capacity to endure, is unattainable without this balance in poultry production.

Sustainable Poultry Production Practices

While there are numerous components in sustainable poultry and broiler production practices, Jones-Hamilton plays a vital role with a variety of products that promote the reduction of natural resources and lower emissions. And this is not a new role for the Jones-Hamilton Company. In fact, we were an environmental steward long before it was popular. The environmental chemistry of our earth-friendly products reflect our commitment to your people, your birds and the environment.
