Fevicol Champions’ Club (FCC) is an ethnic social platform that brings woodworking contractors together to boost their personal and professional growth. It is a pan-India community-based program where people of the woodworking industry learn new techniques, build networks, and earn recognition for their work. Its widespread presence makes it the single largest platform for contractors.
FCC was introduced on 20th December 2002 in cities of Kanpur and Surat. Started as a simple club with an aim of being a social leveler for contractors, it has now branched out to a number of initiatives serving the entire nation. It does something for all its stakeholders including contractors, their families, carpenters, dealers, employees of Fevicol, and the general public.
With the intention of doing good for the society, FCC spearheads a number of initiatives. Some of its key initiatives are:
Fevicol celebrates Shramdaan Diwas under the FCC, aimed at serving the society. Under the initiative, Fevicol sponsors the material and contractors and carpenters donate one day of their labor to needy schools and organizations; contributing towards the noble cause. The initiative has made entries into the Limca Book of Records, Asian Book of Records, and India Book of Records. In 2016, the program reached 429 cities in India and was associated with 50,011 members and making an impact to 812 institutions.
