About Odin

Behind the name Odin

We wanted to create a research and development company that would allow us to research and develop technologies, and then spin out "children" companies. This idea was combined with a more personal reason. Both Ian Peterman & Doc Hudson, co-founders of Odin Materials, trace their heritage back to Viking roots with Doc able to trace all the way back to Rollo the Viking, first ruler of Normandy.

Our Why

Founded by Ian Peterman and Doc & Rebecca Hudson, Odin Materials was created to develop innovative materials and technologies for a better and more sustainable world.
