Fernco 50 Years webThe Fernco Joint Sealer Company was established in 1964 by an individual contractor looking for a time saving and reliable solution to his pipe connection needs. Mr. Zopfi developed a pre-formed tar donut for use on his own jobs in the Detroit area during the late 1940's. Word spread of his invention and this ready market encouraged him to set up a small shop in a garage behind his plumbing business.

Since this beginning, Fernco has grown into more markets and has continued to develop innovative, reliable and easy-to-use products. Developments such as flexible elbows and tees made the Fernco name synonymous with the highest quality of product and service in the industry.

Fernco initially expanded into Canada and then to the Western USA with a location in Reno, Nevada. In August, 2002, Fernco, Inc. acquired Flexseal Couplings, the leading manufacturer of flexible couplings in the European market, creating a global group, dedicated to supply of the highest quality flexible couplings for drainage and plumbing applications.
