Our History

First Industrial Controls Inc. was formed on February 14, 2002 by Wayne Roberts who enjoyed working for another rep firm from 1986 until 2002. At that time, changes had taken place and the firm’s owner, whom Wayne held great respect for, and to whom he owed many of his learned skills, was planning on retiring. With this upcoming, Wayne found himself at a crossroads of self examination. Then, with gratitude and respect for those who had supported him so far, and for those who would support him (and First Industrial Controls Inc.) into the future, he took the confident step outward and established First Industrial Controls Inc. Built on this support, the business today continues to honor Wayne’s business mentor, friends, family, coworkers, colleagues, the manufacturing partners and customers who have, and continue to, graciously contributed to the journey that is the success of First Industrial Controls Inc..

Since the first day of FIC, the desire to build a company that serves customers with excellence, integrity, respect, and in the spirit of God’s love has been paramount. It is a core tenant of First Industrial Controls Inc. to always be authentic with every customer and with one another, as individuals.
