Company History

FCS Industrial Solutions is the industrial services branch of FCS, Incorporated.  We have been in business since 1988, providing a wide range of janitorial and industrial cleaning solutions for all types of facilities.  Founded by Buddy Smith in Danville, Virginia, FCS, Incorporated has grown into one of the leading service providers in the region.

The Early Days

Like most start-ups, the early days at FCS, Incorporated were nothing fancy.  The company was started in a basement with an old van, a few vacuum cleaners, and very little money.  The company was started with the simple goal of providing basic janitorial services in a professional manner at a competitive price.  After several months of small projects, the company was awarded its’ first full service contract with the Danville Urologic Clinic in downtown Danville, Virginia.  Twenty six years later, we are still under contract with this facility. 

Throughout the early 90’s the company grew at a steady rate, picking up more and more full service janitorial contracts.  By 1995, FCS, Incorporated was recognized as a quality local provider of janitorial services, employing roughly 15 people.  By the late 90’s, the company was ready to go to the next level.

The Growth

In 2000, the company was a solid local company with big goals.  FCS, Incorporated started targeting larger accounts across a bigger portion of the state.  After securing several major contracts in the region, FCS was ready to really grow.  Over the next decade FCS, Incorporated grew into a major player in the facility services market within the region.  We currently employ over 150 staff members and operate out of two offices, with our corporate office in Danville and a secondary office in central Virginia.

As the company grew, so did our service offerings.  Over the past decade we have branched into numerous service areas, prompting the formation of FCS Industrial Solutions.  We have completed unique industrial cleaning jobs in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina.  Our highly trained and skilled project technicians allow us to tackle virtually any unique industrial cleaning need.  Whether you need a printing press dry ice blasted or a confined space team to clean out a flour silo, we are your one stop shop!

FCS Industrial Solutions takes great pride in having a professional and well trained workforce.  Due to the nature of many of the projects we are asked to perform, safety and training are of the utmost importance.  As a facility manager, you should know that the contractors you utilize are fully trained and certified to perform any task safely and professionally.  Even though contractors and their employees are not employed by your company, it is ultimately the responsibility of the facility manager to ensure that the work is performed safely and by technicians who have been properly trained.

The job task being performed will always dictate what type of training is required for the technicians performing the work.  Some of the projects we perform, such as dry ice blasting, require only basic industrial safety training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training.  Other projects, such as confined space cleaning, require extensive job specific safety training and professional certifications.  Prior to providing a service proposal and quote, one of our experienced project managers or owners will do a full assessment of the needs of the facility, including the training and safety precautions required to perform the project.  The more dangerous the environment the project is performed in, the more detailed the planning must be.

In an effort to not only meet, but to exceed, the safety requirements for each job we have placed an emphasis on always providing highly qualified and trained technicians and project managers.  As a result, we have never suffered a workplace injury, recordable or otherwise.  Our technicians receive the following training through third party certified training programs:

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Training
  • Lift Operator Training
  • Blood Borne Pathogens Training
  • Fall Protection Training
  • Confined Space Rescue Training
  • Confined Space Entrant Training

  • High Angle Rescue Training
  • Low Angle Rescue Training
  • HAZMAT Operations Training
  • HAZWOPER 40 Training and Certification
