The Extruded Polystyrene Foam Association has chosen association management firm Kellen Co. to provide management services for XPSA and named Allen Weidman as its executive director.
Weidman is senior sustainability executive in Kellen's Washington office and a former executive at the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc., where he headed the Fluoropolymers division and the Alliance of Plastics Processors before leaving in 2007.
XPSA members manufacture more than 95 percent of all XPS used in North America and include Dow Building Solutions, Pactiv Building Products and Owens-Corning Foam Insulation.
Kellen's experience will help the industry respond to technical and regulatory challenges and help them advocate the benefits of extruded polystyrene foam products, said XPSA President Scott Young, who is global portfolio director of energy solutions at Dow Building Solutions.
