Our beginnings were humble.
The year was 1985. Founder Robert Becker, a veteran in the chemical industry, launched Fitz Chem as a place where people and ideas could thrive. His motto: Grow through reputation.
Fast forward to 2017. After three decades of growth, the perfect partner found us. NAGASE, an $8 billion innovator known for high-end Japanese technologies, shared our foundational values – a passion for building other people’s success, trust and respect, and honest communication. With global access to experts and ahead-of-the-wave technologies, our unique chemistries give customers an opportunity to win.
Today, we are a hybrid company.
Fitz Chem NAGASE Group is both a traditional distributor of specialty chemicals and a manufacturer of chemical formulations. We are scientists and technology geeks, thinkers and creatives. We are always questioning: What is the impact of our work on the future of consumer goods?
Hang up the phone, then trust.
In a marketplace where rapid change is the norm, a promise kept can mean the difference between going to market on time and missing a critical window of opportunity altogether. Our reputation is built on unshakable ground: on-time delivery and shipping, suppliers prepared for orders with minimal disruption, access to chemists and industry experts, and a flawless track record of follow-through rooted in our values.
