Our history in the polyurethane industry started nearly 60 years ago, when our founder was a significant contributor to the evolution of polyurethane seat cushion production for the automotive industry. Since that time, we have been leading innovation, thanks to our vast worldwide research and development resources, dedicated to creating solutions to customer challenges as well as paving the way for the future.
With a focus on increasing the quality of your products, we work to maximize productivity, efficiency, and safety, while reducing waste and error. In addition, we are committed to sustainability in both improving our footprint (our direct impact) as well as our handprint (the impact we can create for our customers). We are far more than a creator of products; we add value to each of our customers each and every day.
