Meet Our Team

When it comes to inks and foams, the expertise of the Porelon team is unrivaled. Our chemists have developed several patented and proprietary technologies that are exclusive to Porelon, and our Lean Manufacturing practices empower our associates to be even more innovative.

From management and sales to manufacturing and chemistry, we take great pride in developing creative solutions for our customers. You will find a rare combination of talented professionals who are just as comfortable working in a laboratory as they are working directly with customers. At every level of the Porelon organization, we are 100 percent customer-focused.

A lot of the time, a Porelon component is just one small piece of a very intricate system or product. But when our piece fits perfectly and performs exactly as specified, it makes our customer’s products work.
Everyone here understands the responsibility each of us has to our customers and we take it very seriously.”

It is not unusual for a customer to describe a product concept then ask me to develop a special foam structure or a really specialized application. We’re a very creative group that likes to jump in at the early concept stage and figure out both the chemistry and engineering to make a product idea into reality.”
