ChemFoam is the missing link between the global raw materials supplier and the local polyurethane manufacturer.
As an agent, ChemFoam employs a global raw material supplier’s strategy, mission, and sales goals, as an extension of the company itself. By pairing this representation with ChemFoam’s knowledge of the new market’s customer base, market dynamics, and logistical structures, a global supplier can seamlessly enter an untapped foreign market as a “local” supplier.
For a polyurethane manufacturer, ChemFoam’s logistical expertise and technical know-how provides the opportunity to source raw materials from top global suppliers without the extraordinary time and costs associated with searching for and vetting a foreign supply source.
At ChemFoam, we thrive on “Turning Global Into Local.” We accomplish this goal through our industry leading Worldwide Market Knowledge, Supply Chain Coordination, and Urethane Expertise.
