Federal Process Corporation is now FPC International, Inc.

New name reflects chemical company’s growing global presence and expanding portfolio.

Federal Process Corporation, a diversified manufacturer of specialty chemicals and premium-quality building products and supplier of innovative plumbing products, announced today that it is rebranding as FPC International, Inc.

As the company has grown, building its product offerings through its own research and scientific innovations, along with recent acquisitions, the action is a more fitting reflection of the company’s expansion into a much broader range of niche industries.

Today, FPC International, Inc. remains loyal and dedicated to its local roots, retaining its global headquarters in Cleveland, and manages five distinct businesses within the building product and specialty chemical industries, including:

  • FedPro, Inc.: Producer of tough, reliable performance chemicals including thread sealants, lubricants and premium cleaners
