Foam Techniques, The Wellingborough Foam Component Specialist reflects on a period of sustained growth
Neil Blythe (Joint Managing Director) reflects on the considerable changes over the past three years to the products and services provided by Foam Techniques Ltd, the Wellingborough-based technical foam converter, have been a major driver to the continued success of the company.
These positive updates position the leading technical foam fabricator extremely well for further substantial targeted growth in the future, said Neil Blythe, Joint Managing Director
A comprehensive product range of flexible cellular foams, rubbers and allied products is now in place to meet any application or problem that needs to be resolved quickly, efficiently and competitively.
The depth of readily available raw materials has always been vitally important to the success of the company from the day it first opened its doors nearly 30 years ago and this range continues to go from strength to strength. Availability of over 500 grades of various polymer type foams and allied materials are now accessible to resolve any problem
Today the range is successfully and simply categorized into filtration, acoustic and sealing, in three individual solutions brochures or foam wizards to make selection of material easy for the end user for any application, which is supported by the backup of the firm's very knowledgeable sales engineers.
Filtration Solutions reveals a large group of high-quality open cell reticulated foams for dust, particulate or debris removal in air or water, from a very fine structure to very coarse in a variety of densities.
Acoustic Solutions offers a wide choice of sound insulating materials with samples to make selection simple and easy to eradicate noise issues.
Sealing Solutions offers the best of choices for a wide selection of closed and semi-closed foam materials to prevent ingress of fluid and to stop anti-rattle.
Significant increase in business levels in the past three years, with future expansion planned, has necessitated the importance of developing a committed team to cope with demand. Customer service teams have been strengthened while similar changes have been made to the sales department with well-trained sales engineers in place to take on customer enquiries and to provide them the best possible cost-effective advice.
To complement the hard work at the front end, production capability and capacity is firmly in place, ready and waiting to fulfill orders on time at the right quality, as a result of significant capital expenditure on new equipment and process improvement schemes and more plant investment planned in the near future.
