About ICC Industries Inc.

The ICC Industries Inc. group of companies ( develops, manufactures, trades and markets a diverse range of chemicals, plastics, pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements and related products.  ICC is also a significant investor in a global leader in the field of flavors and ingredients for the food and beverage industries.
Headquartered in New York City since 1950, the ICC Group’s origins trace back to Central Europe during the early 20th century, when Eugene Farber founded the United Factory for Varnishes and Paints in his home town of Timisoara, Romania. That company was nationalized after the Second World War, and in 1948 the Farber family left Romania.  Eugene’s son John made his way to the newly-formed State of Israel, later immigrating to New York City to pursue his doctorate in the emerging field of polymer chemistry.  There, he joined his father-in-law, Leslie Kleyman, at Mr. Kleyman’s textile import-export business.  Soon Dr. John Farber began sourcing chemical ingredients for the paints that his family had produced in Romania, selling them to European customers.  That activity developed into ICC’s chemical trading business.

In the following decades, the ICC group expanded by adding companies that develop and manufacture a variety of products. One of them is the reprivatized paint and coatings company that the Farber family started in Romania, now known as SC Azur.  ICC remains a family-owned company with Dr. Farber as its Chairman. Sandra Farber, representing the third generation of the family, serves as Vice Chair.  We are proud of our history, and we look forward with enthusiasm to a future of sustainable growth and continued success of the ICC Group.
