FOAM MANUFACTURING DIVISION
"East meets West"
Our business model is to provide specialty foam products (often referred to as technical foam products) combining the best business practices of the eastern and western worlds. From the eastern world we focus on state of the art manufacturing processes, efficient supply and logistics and the importance of building long-term business relationships. From the western world we utilize experience in specialty foam development and close interaction with customers to be considered a partner in developing solutions to challenging and often unique requirements.
Our engineered foam products include polyester and polyether polyurethane foam with our manufacturing and converting facility strategically located in Laem Chanbang which is the major ocean port for Thailand. Our location allows us to efficiently supply technical foam products to our customers throughout Asia , Europe and North, Central and South America.
Our vertically integrated facility allows us to offer a complete service from foam development to just-in-time supply of final products. This reduces transportation and product handling cost between facilities. A principal service that we provide for our customers often involves several different functions including collaboration with customers on identifying key performance criteria, discussions on identifying solutions by utilizing our research and development engineers. The result is an innovative solution combining our polyester and polyether foam production and various processing capabilities.
Research & Development
Our research and development team are located in Thailand and the United States and focus on collaborating with our customers to quickly solve their technical foam related problems. This requires a dedicated and focused development team and quick response time. The need to ensure prompt response time is evident by our position as the only specialty polyurethane foam manufacturer in southeast Asia with a prototype production line that is dedicated for research and development projects. This allows us to provide ideas and then innovative polyester and polyether technical foam prototype products to our customers for their immediate review.

Combining development and processing capabilities:
Our Research & Development cooperate closely with our engineering and production groups to offer solutions that combine new specialty foams with innovative foam fabrication. This allows us to offer solutions that combine technical foam development with our diverse capabilities in foam reticulating, laminating, quenching, felting/heat-pressing and rotary die-cutting.
Main industries served
Our focus is on cooperation and collaboration with our valued customers in the automotive, electronics, industrial markets and personal and beauty care markets.
Technical polyether and polyester foams developed for use in applications ranging from acoustic, sealing and gasketing (air and water) and paint applications (grinding foams, cutting foams, buffing foams)
Specialty polyurethane foams developed for use in applications ranging from cushioning, energy absorption, filtering, gasketing and noise absorption.
Various polyurethane foams developed for filtering, acoustical and hi-durablity sponges developed for the building and cleaning market.
Personal and beauty market:
Technical polyurethane foams developed for applications varying from cosmetic puffs, eye-shadow applicators and liquid foundation reservoir systems to easily moldable non-yellowing foam for ladies braziers and garments.
