Foam Products Corp.
Foam Products Corporation constructed its foundation from supplying synthetic rubber foam to the U.S. Shoe Industry beginning in the late 1970s. As globalization and the desire for low cost labor dramatically changed the face of the industry, FPC changed as well, diversifying our customer base, while expanding and enhancing our product offering. Today, we serve industries as diverse as footwear, apparel, eyeglasses, automotive, printing, floor covering, and industrial equipment.
Foam Products Corporation is a company built on the strength to be the primary resource for all your synthetic rubber and polyurethane foam products. FPC has become a leader in providing acoustical underlayment, installation accessories, and commercial carpet cushion to the floor covering industry.
Foam Products Corporation is one of the worlds' largest producers of acoustical underlayments for the flooring industry. Our premium products, Eco Ultimate Silencer™ and Eco Silencer HD FOF™, are the finest acoustical underlayment for floating, glue down, and nail down laminate, solid hardwood, engineered wood, and bamboo flooring available in today's marketplace.
A market exists for a growing demand to replace plywood within the flooring, building materials, and furniture industry, and FPC will look to the successful brand equity created through their current line of products to launch a new line of rigid foam products ( Eco Planks ) in order to diversify and grow business. The line will include urethane foam cast onto a number of various substrates and incorporate recycled carpet fibers.
FPC will be targeting the U.S. market. While plywood hits an impressive price point for the benefits provided, FPC feels it has a truly unique niche product that will address an upward trending desire for a plywood alternative. The primary objective for this product is to offer an attractive alternative to plywood, and penetrate 0.025% of the market by the end of 2021, or 1.7 million cubic feet, and double this volume in 2022.
FPC’s Eco Plank will provide a higher performance alternative to plywood, that offers the unique sustainable product description on the market. EP offers higher insulation values, increased sound deadening properties, lighter weight, warp proof, water and rot resistance, and utilizes recycled carpet fibers. Most importantly, Eco Plank helps to prevent tree harvesting, and contributes a portion of the profits are toward global re-forestation: the vital crusade documented to help fight and reverse climate change.
