The beginning of this week saw Plymouth Foam’s VP/GM, Mark Schuh, traveling to Baltimore, MD, to attend the EPS Foam Expo. Along with colleagues from Altor Solutions, he spent March 21-23 learning about trends and opportunities in the Foam industry. This was the first time the conference had taken place since 2019.
Of continuing importance to Plymouth Foam, Altor Solutions, and our leadership team is sustainability. As in many industries, sustainability is a topic at the forefront of many conversations, and it will be at this conference as well. The EPS Foam Expo is sponsored by the EPS Industry Alliance (EPS-IA), which has a solid commitment to sustainability. As they state on their website:
EPS is a product that provides smart solutions and durable, efficient results. Equally important, EPS is a sustainable product that is recyclable and environmentally sound. The lifecycle of EPS has been studied, documented and proven to leave a smaller footprint on our planet than comparable materials. It is a sensible option for packaging, building, insulating and protecting, and a responsible choice for the environment.
At Plymouth Foam, an Altor Solutions Company, we are looking forward to hearing all of Mark’s takeaways from the expo. We will be sure to share them with all of you next week. Until then, if we can be of any assistance, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
