Committed to providing quality products while maintaining competitive pricing, American Excelsior Company (AEC) has invested in new equipment at their five foam fabricating plants across the United States.

This equipment includes:  Increase molding capacity by 50% with additional molding line added; automated wrapping and heat shrink tunnel custom packaging capability; additional CNC cutting equipment; Additional Die Cutting Presses; and a Flash Cutter which will help AEC’s ability to supply a quick turnaround on both custom parts and prototypes.

Ron Scheck, Director of Flexible Foams, stated, “American Excelsior Company has over 128 years of business success, including fabricating flexible foams since its introduction to the U.S. in the mid-1950s. Our success comes from knowing how to continually innovate. American Excelsior’s associates are hands-on, and always looking for ways to make things better for our customers and for ourselves. New equipment helps with efficiencies and cost improvements, but people create innovation. Over American Excelsior’s history, we believe we have produced some of the best fabricating personnel in the industry.”

Today, American Excelsior has five foam fabricating plants, located in Norwalk, Ohio; West Chicago, Illinois; Sheboygan, Wisconsin; Yakima, Washington; and Arlington, Texas. These locations fabricate and mold a wide variety of products, such as polyether/polyester foams; polyethylene foams; crosslinks foams; and molded foams. Applications for such foams include bedding; furniture; automotive; packaging; recreational; medical; novelty; pet bedding; acoustical; and many, many more applications.
