27 Tips for 27 Years

It’s been 27 years since Lynn Parnell established FJC (short for Fruit Jar Chemist), creating A/C flushes in his NC garage.  We’ve come a long way since then—we’ve expanded our product line, our staff, and our footprint— now filling two warehouses and offering streamlined logistics capacity to serve all of North America.  We’ve also become a respected information resource in the industry, providing training and guidance to our customers.

Sadly, Lynn passed away in 2015, but we continue to celebrate his legacy in many ways—and here we are offering one helpful tip for each of the years FJC has been in business.
