Job Description

Our story is an American story; one that began in a tiny Chicago warehouse in 1918 and continues to this day. It’s a story built on hard work, innovation and old school values. And it’s built on a people first philosophy – the people who handcraft each gasket and the people who rely on them.

The story of Fel-Pro is 100 years in the making. You could help us continue to write this story over the next 100 years. Let our story be your story.
