ST. LOUIS (June 14, 1:30 p.m. ET) — Foam Supplies Inc., patent holders of Ecomate blowing agent technology, has set up a subsidiary in India, named Foam Supplies India Pvt. Ltd.
The India operations will focus primarily on the distribution of Ecomate in Asia and the Pacific. FSI says Ecomate is an affordable non-ozone depleting, and no global warming potential polyurethane foam blowing agent technology based on methyl formate.
The success in the use of this technology has led to the investment in India, Foam Supplies said in a June 6 news release. The India office will be fully functional starting January 2013 but product will be available from July 2012.
“Our company is committed to providing an easily accessible supply of Ecomate to its growing customer base in many countries which prompted the launch of the India operations,” said Todd Keske, FSI director of Ecomate development, in a 6 June news release.
He added, “This expansion greatly enhances the ability and speed by which FSI and its global partners can supply this “green” product and technology at a greatly reduced cost.”
