FlexForm Technologies Celebrates 15th Anniversary as a Leading Provider of Natural Fiber Composites



by James Hilton

FlexForm Technologies, a manufacturer of non-woven natural fiber composite substrates, is celebrating the company's 15th anniversary. Started in 1999 and headquartered at a 95,000 square-foot plant in Elkhart, FlexForm manufactures products that are strong, lightweight, moldable, and completely recyclable for various industries.

 

Steadily expanding its presence and capabilities since the company's inception, FlexForm is a composite material provider with extensive expertise in natural fiber composite formulation, design and development. The company serves the needs of many global industries - including the automotive, office interior, aircraft, recreational vehicle, truck, commercial vehicle, modular housing and packaging industries.

 

"As we mark our 15th anniversary, we take a moment to thank our customers, employees and suppliers for their steadfast dedication and support, which has made this all possible," said Gregg Baumbaugh, CEO, FlexForm Technologies. "We look forward to furthering our mission of utilizing sustainable resources to consume less energy, generate less waste and deliver products which meet our customer's performance specifications.  We pride ourselves in helping our customers get the results they are striving for, not just supplying the materials."

 

FlexForm, which holds ISO/TS16949 2009 registration signifying its excellence in quality manufacturing, offers composite substrates that are a blend of natural fibers and fiberized thermoplastic polymers and are 100 percent recyclable. This helps reduce or, in some cases, eliminate disposal fees for trim waste in manufacturing processes. 

 

In addition, the FlexForm material has no added toxic volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions.  Any naturally occurring VOC's found in the natural fiber are well below industry standards set by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Greenguard(TM), therefore its use can reduce a manufacturer's total VOC emissions and improve interior air quality.

 

Backed by ASTM testing and quality control equipment, FlexForm's laboratory is available to customers for development and rapid parts prototyping and feature both large and small presses, contact and forced hot air ovens. The team can also assist customers with equipment specifications, plant design, and installation of 3D press lines.
