INSIDE

Manufacturing

Our manufacturing philosophy is to embrace every job with the question.

“How can we do this better?” We are passionate about building the most effective manufacturing lines in the foam industry – ensuring flawless quality, on-time delivery, and the reliable supply of our broad range of technologies. Our in-line 3D cutting tools provide consistency and precision for optimum design – every product, every batch. Our operations and supply chain teams work relentlessly to ensure that our foams are made in a safe, environmentally-responsible, efficient and cost effective manner in our plants across the nation. With every action and improvement, we strive to enhance our abilities as a reliable, flexible and trusted partner for our customers.

We are proud to manufacture all of our foam products in the USA – ensuring lower shipping costs, faster deliveries, shorter lead times and higher quality. Because this commitment resonates strongly with consumers, our USA-made foams can help enhance the brand reputations of end-use products across a wide array of industries.

Inside our robust manufacturing network, we guarantee you’ll find the solutions you need, exactly where and when you need them. Your world moves quickly, and so do we.

Safety

Our commitment to safety is more than just a series of programs; safety is a core component of our culture, and it guides all that we do and every decision we make. From our executive offices to the manufacturing floor, our focus on safety touches every corner of our organization. As a team, we may all have very different roles, but we share the same top priority of ensuring that each and every one of us returns home safely – day after day, and year after year.

Our rigorous Safety Audit program involves employees at all levels and ensures that we meet all regulatory requirements and uncover any opportunities for enhancement. In 2015, we improved our Injury Rate by 30% and our Lost Time Injury Rate by 50%. While our constant safety target is zero injuries – because even one injury is one too many – we are very proud of the tangible improvements we have made as a collective team over the past few years. In particular, our High Point plant in North Carolina recently hit an impressive milestone of three years injury-free, and the site team has been recognized for their efforts by the NC Department of Labor with a Gold Safety Award.

At our very core, we believe that safety is a dynamic, life-long learning process, and through excellent training and ongoing dialog, we are all empowered – and encouraged – to speak up if a safety hazard is identified or to share a suggestion for improvement. This razor-sharp focus on safety is a core commitment we make every single day – to ourselves, our colleagues, our families and the communities in which we operate.
