The leader in providing flow control solutions.

We are expanding our offerings, services, and reach.

Based in Columbus, Ohio, with over $40 million of inventory available in regional operations centers, FCX is the premier distributor of highly engineered specialty flow control products and life cycle services to MRO and OEM customers across diverse industrial and processed end markets. Our comprehensive value-added solutions help customers improve cost productivity, reduce downtime, increase efficiency, and effectively meet increasing regulatory compliance standards.  

We are backed by powerful resources.

Formed in 1999 and with predecessor company histories dating back to the early 1900s, the company has continued to grow and expand its service offerings through numerous strategic acquisitions. This longstanding acquisition/growth strategy has positioned FCX to provide customers with Everything on the Pipe. In 2018, FCX Performance was acquired by Applied Industrial Technologies. Combining with Applied's unmatched industrial offering positions us as a leading technical solutions provider with significant opportunities for growth.

As a member of Applied Industrial Technologies network, our engineering capabilities, custom application expertise, and value-added services provide a complete, one-stop solutions offering.

The Power to Perform

We consider ourselves engineers first and sales people second. We are proud of our culture that emphasizes customer service, vendor relationships, and a focus on providing long-term, career growth opportunities for our team members. Our highly qualified staff view themselves as process application advisors who can help you navigate the complexities of production and manufacturing to find the best solutions to your flow control challenges.

Customer Focused

The entire network of FCX companies prides itself on taking great care of our customers. Our ability to provide same-day shipping—even same-day delivery—of critical process control parts to manufacturers in need is one of our greatest assets. With inventory distribution centers across the United States, FCX customers can make repairs and get their production operations back online quickly after a valve or instrumentation malfunction.  

“Thank you for all you did Saturday on finding the actuator, positioner and bracket, and getting it to us on the same day." 


“It saved us about a half-million dollars in product.”
