Environmentally friendly Fomo

Polyurethane foam sealant and adhesive manufacturer Fomo Products Inc. recently launched a corporate-wide green initiative at the opening of its new Spray Foam Production Center in Akron, Ohio.

Rather than building a new facility for its Spray Foam Production Center, Fomo bought and recycled an old retail store in the Rolling Acres area of Akron. Activity at the Center will focus on recycling foam tanks by refilling them and sending them off for use at large construction projects and OEM plants.

Fomo is also making other signifi – cant changes to create a corporate culture that is more dedicated to environmental sustainability. The company has developed a Green Team of employees from different divisions of the company to lead initiatives. The company’s headquarters in Norton, Ohio, are being assessed and improved for energy efficiency, more green life will be brought indoors, and aggressive recycling programs have been launched.

Fomo’s polyurethane foam insulation products, Handi Foam and Handi Seal, are already being used in the design and construction of energy-efficient buildings. Some of the polyol components found in Fomo’s products come from recycled plastic bottles, and Fomo is exploring new formulations to deliver products that are even more eco-friendly.
