“We love the city and the county! Representatives have been the most proactive and responsive of any of our plants, and FBC appreciates the support. The location is great with access to all the major highways and easy ways to reach our customers. And the rail service is invaluable.

Overall, we appreciate the city’s understanding of what we do and how we do it.” – Dave Hudac, FBC Chemical

FBC Chemical Corp. Successfully Passes Responsible Distribution Verification, Sustaining Commitment to Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental Performance
Mars, PA – Today, FBC Chemical announced that it has successfully passed its NACD Responsible Distribution® verification for the current three-year cycle, reaffirming the company’s commitment to the health, safety, and security of its employees, communities, and the environment. Responsible Distribution is the National Association of Chemical Distributor’s (NACD) third-party verified environmental, health, safety, and security program that allows members to demonstrate their commitment to continuous performance improvement in every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation, and disposal.
“Responsible Distribution is critical to the chemical distribution industry’s ability to safely deliver more than 30 million tons of product every year,” said NACD President and CEO, Eric R. Byer. “Through their successful verification, FBC Chemical and its senior leadership have committed to the continuous improvement in the chemical distribution industry’s responsible management and handling of chemicals that ensures NACD members effectively support the industries America relies on most, like agriculture, healthcare, oil and gas, manufacturing equipment, and many others.”
The Responsible Distribution program requires on-site, third-party verification of facilities against a set of guiding principles, including strict adherence to laws and regulations and participation with interested entities in creating responsible laws, regulations, and practices to help safeguard the community, workplace, and environment.
Participation in Responsible Distribution has significant benefits, including lower instances of safety and environmental incidents, better documentation of company policies, better communication with local communities, reduced audit time and costs, and increased credibility.
FBC has been in the Responsible Distribution process since 1991. To learn more about FBC Chemical, visit www.fbcchem.com. “Your chemistry is our business.”
