  • Company Overview

    For over twenty years, FMC Lithium has been innovating, manufacturing and delivering products and technologies to power a cleaner, healthier and more mobile world. We have grown as a leader in the industry through partnership with our customers, thriving in a marketplace full of challenges and opportunities. The success we’ve achieved follows a simple but critical promise to our customers: provide consistent, high quality products, ensure security of supply, and anticipate solutions for future needs; all backed by a deep expertise in material science.


    This expertise and the unprecedented growth in the market made it clear that FMC Lithium is ready to separate into an independently traded company by the end of 2018. The FMC Lithium business is poised to stand on its own with leaders and talent that will drive the organization to greater opportunities and accomplishments. We are investing in our future and our customers’ future, and our best is yet to come.

    Based in Philadelphia and under the supervision of internal legal counsel, you will be responsible for supporting the design and implementation of programs, policies, and practices to ensure FMC Lithium and its subsidiaries are compliant with the FMC Lithium Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and other FMC Lithium policies and protocols and applicable laws and regulations.
