The Polyurethane Foam Association (PFA) announced the induction of two new members to the Flexible Polyurethane Foam Hall of Fame during its Spring General Business Meeting in Baltimore, Md. last week.

Inductee Charles D. Moeller, Chairman of Flexible Foam Products, Inc., of Spencerville, OH, was recognized as one of the flexible polyurethane foam industry's leading entrepreneurs. Moeller built his business from a polyurethane pouring facility he originally acquired in a business exchange, into one of the largest flexible polyurethane producing companies in the world. Although Moeller, still actively involved with the business at the age of 85, was not able to attend the ceremony, his son Lewie Moeller, President of Flexible Foam Products, Inc. accepted the honor on his behalf. Three of Moeller's daughters and one of his granddaughters also attended the ceremony.

Also inducted was the Albrecht Bäumer Company which was recognized for its role in advancing the flexible polyurethane foam industry with the development of the loop slitting machine and other innovative foam cutting technologies. Accepting the honor was Philipp Schuster, General Manager of Bäumer America, Inc., the son of the late Matthias Schuster, former CEO of the Bäumer Company, and the great-grandson of Albrecht Bäumer, company founder and namesake.

The Flexible Polyurethane Foam Hall of Fame, housed virtually at www.pfa.org, recognizes individuals and corporations that have significantly contributed to the growth and betterment of the flexible polyurethane foam industry in North America.
