The concept of FMW Rubber Products, Inc., began in September 1991 following discussions with Teledyne Vehicle Systems (TVS) of Muskegon, MI, regarding the manufacture of rubber fuel cells for military use. In 1993, an agreement was reached by the two companies wherein FMW would become the exclusive manufacturer of the "Flexcel". FMW began the manufacture of Flexcel in 1995 following a $2 million appropriation in 1994 by the US Army, for the purchase and testing of 546 Flexcel fuel bladders. FMW employs 15 full time employees in the manufacture of the Flexcel.
