FSP was founded in Finland in 1964 when Neste Oil Porvoo refinery’s peak construction phase was about to begin. FSP was responsible for the surface treatment process and being probably the only company in Finland able to do that. Before this, the industrial surface treatment sector did basically not even exist. It can therefore easily be stated that FSP has created the basis for the industrial surface treatment business in Finland. Over the years FSP has grown constantly into one of the leading companies in Europe.
Present form of FSP emerged in 2001 when three of Finland’s largest companies in the field merged, forming the largest surface treatment company in Finland – FSP Finnish Steel Painting Ltd.
In year 2007 FSP started an internationalization by establishing a subsidiary FSP Steel Painting OÜ and by opening a surface treatment shop in Saue, Estonia. Two years later the expansion in Estonia continued by opening another surface treatment shop in Jüri.
A year later in 2010 internationalization continued into Poland by opening a surface treatment shop in Stargard and by founding a subsidiary FSP Steel Painting Sp. Z o.o.
In year 2012 FSP received its history’s largest project order from Sweden. The order included surface treatment of a total of six bridges. Simultaneously FSP founded For Surface Protection Sverige Filial, a branch company in Sweden.
In 2014 FSP celebrated its 50th anniversary with the course towards growth and internationalization.
In 2016 FSP started operation in Norway.
