Our Partners help create more opportunities for our contractors in the finishing industry. One of our goals is to increase opportunities by cultivating relationships with the industry decision makers and those who influence them through inspiration, information and interaction.

We aim to develop long-term relationships with industry manufacturers, suppliers and vendors whose products and services help signatory contractors deliver the quality end product they pride themselves on.

FCA members are always trying to maximize their ROI. We intend to afford our FCA International Partners the same opportunity to maximize their investment in the finishing industry by providing an avenue for them to establish themselves as a partner for signatory contractors.


PPG is proud to work with the FCA in supporting their mission to further enable the success of contractors in the finishing industry through striving to cultivate long-standing relationships. The partnership between the FCA and PPG is a strong example of both organizations commitment to serving the Pro through providing products and services that professionals can trust and rely on.
