About Us

A Global Leader

Our Vision

Chemsearch FE is part of NCH Corporation, a global leader in industrial, commercial, and institutional maintenance products and services, and one of the largest companies in the world to sell such products through direct marketing. Since its beginning in 1919, the company has evolved and grown to become a trailblazer in water treatment, drain and wastewater maintenance, HVAC solutions, spill absorbents and green-certified products.

FE’s mission is simple—to help facilities save water, energy and reduce operating costs. We stand behind the premise of doing more with less through conservation practices such as waste stream bioaugmentation, water reclamation, reuse and recycling. In doing so, we are changing the paradigm for facility resource management.

With sales in excess of $1 billion, more than 120 registered patents worldwide, hundreds of products and a variety of emerging technologies, Chemsearch FE outpaces the competition and the marketplace.

Most importantly, we stand side-by-side with our clients to optimize building resources, improve efficiencies and convey a corporate message that the environment matters. Making a commitment to sustainable practices shouldn’t be a burden, and we’re here to make sure it isn’t.


Corporate Sustainability


Corporate sustainability is an ever-changing concept. Commercial and institutional buildings consume significant amounts of water and energy in their daily operations, making them prime targets for corporate sustainability requirements. In fact, it is estimated that these buildings consume more than 39 billion gallons of water per day - nearly 17% of our public water supply in the United States. In 2012, commercial buildings in the United States consumed nearly 7 trillion BTUs of energy, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration—an increase of 7 percent since 2003.

These facilities are coming under increased pressure to find ways to reduce the use of and find ways to reuse these natural resources. Due to population growth, drought or infrastructure failure, buildings nationwide and around the world are implementing aggressive water and energy reduction plans. At Chemsearch FE, we’re committed to helping our customers achieve their sustainability goals through innovative solutions, patented technologies and education. We are able to meet the unique needs of those who are responsible for the operation of urban facilities through water conservation, energy savings and property maintenance programs. FE possesses more than 120 patents worldwide. Our advanced technologies include cryogenics, water treatment, enzyme and bacteriological control. We are continuously improving our formulations to exceed our customers’ most stringent demands.
