Ozotech & Others in the Pet Industry Classified Essential Businesses


Last week California issued a Shelter in place order for the State. This resulted in thousands of California businesses closing their physical locations to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Friday, Ozotech discovered that the company falls under the category of an essential business and plans to remain open for production.

Ozotech’s announcement:

“It is our top priority being the security, safety & health of our staff, their families and our community. Therefore, our team decided to temporarily close Ozotech’s production facility for the week of March 23rd – March 27th for detailed, deep cleaning and reorganization of our production facility and schedule to insure “Social Distancing” during the normal workday. We will restart production on Monday March 30th”.

Telephone and email contact with Customer service, Engineering, Technical support, Supply chain and Sales support remains available during the production shutdown. These personnel are working remotely and are accessible to you from the hours of 7 AM to 4 PM PST, Monday through Friday.

Ozotech’s popular Poseidon 200 ozone generator can be used for marine or freshwater aquariums.
