Federal-Mogul Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Fel-Pro Gaskets Brand
July 23, 2018—Fel-Pro Gaskets has reached its 100th year.
Founded in July 1918 in Chicago and since 1998 a brand from global vehicle components manufacturer Federal-Mogul Motorparts, Fel-Pro begins its second century continuing to provide automotive sealing technologies for engine builders, technicians, professional and amateur racing teams, and thousands of other customers.
The brand’s 100th anniversary celebration, which included customer promotions and other activities spanning several months, culminated in a party on Saturday for more than 1,400 employees and their family members at the million-square-foot Fel-Pro engineering, product management, manufacturing and distribution complex in Skokie, Ill. The Skokie facility, which each day produces more than 325,000 gaskets and ships in excess of 125,000 complete gasket sets, has been home to Fel-Pro since the early 1950s.
“Most great brands—those that define their product categories—share several key characteristics, including highly skilled and dedicated employees, market-leading technologies, strict quality standards and a relentless focus on the needs of their customers. Each of these strengths has been central to Fel-Pro’s continued leadership,” said Craig Frohock, vice president, global sealing, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.
