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.

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.
