Who We Are
Financial Products and Services was
founded on November 2, 1987, by a Salem, Oregon family looking to
serve the community. The company began by selling life
insurance, health insurance, and retirement plans.

employees of the company have changed, and Financial Products and
Services continues to evolve in becoming a better equipped company
each year. We have transitioned from the financial-specific

FPS is an employee-owned company,
dedicated to being a great company to own, work for, and do business
with. We understand that the business environment is
constantly changing so we strive to be "Always Changing, Always
Improving" to remain a valuable asset to our customers and the
We make business decisions based on
the effect of a combination of three factors: our shareholders, the
community, and the environment.
- Shareholders: We have a
responsibility to act as good stewards of the trust and
resources that our shareholders have invested in us.
- Community: We believe we
should seek to strengthen the communities in which we do
- Environment: We were
green before it was cool. We believe that it's important
to take care of the environment for future generations.
It's not only responsible, but it often makes good business
sense as well.
In the new logo, there are stairs
which represent our desire to be "Always Changing, Always
Improving". Also, stairs are used by people, so this is
why FPS is in the middle of the staircase, symbolizing that we are
not only strengthening our growth, but those in our community as
well. The leaf represents our desire to grow towards being
more environmentally conscientious. And finally, the green
represents both the dedication to the environment as well as our
dedication to the shareholders.
