Minneapolis - Comfort cushioning manufacturer Carpenter Co. has formally introduced the Renew brand of foam cushioning made with Cargill's soy-based BiOH polyols, the company announced 29 Sept. BiOH polyols are used to help flexible foam manufacturers reduce their environmental footprint.
"We are already selling Renew foam to major names in the furniture industry such as La-Z-Boy brand, and we are beginning to work with bedding manufacturers as well," said president Stan Yukevich.
"We chose Cargill's BiOH polyols for their unique and proprietary soybean oil technology, which allows us to produce consistent quality without sacrificing consumer comfort and without the need for our customers to reengineer their processes. It's no surprise that it' already proving to be a popular option."
Yusuf Wazirzasa, business unit leader of Cargill Boibased Polyurethanes added, "We're thrilled to team up with Carpenter to bring technologically superior biobased cushioning to the global market in a big way. This is a major milestone journey that started as a research project only four years ago and is quickly expanding to global manufacturing and distribution."
