Creative Foam Corporation was founded in 1969 by the late Dr. Peter T. Swallow as a manufacturer and supplier of custom engineered die cut, formed foam, nonwoven and multi-material component solutions to the automotive, healthcare and wind energy markets.  With offices and facilities throughout North America and Mexico, Creative Foam features over one million square feet of production space to provide solutions to its customers.

Creative Foam’s Transportation Division is focused on providing solutions to continually evolving vehicle issues, primarily related to noise, vibration or harshness along with sealing, airflow or insulation concerns.  Its Healthcare Division offers strong capabilities in RF (radio frequency) welding, which enables Creative Foam to deliver application solutions to consumable medical products such as sequential compression wraps, temperature regulating devices and body comfort pads.  With extensive capabilities in foam encapsulation, molding/coating and in-house materials testing, the Healthcare Division also provides products and services for medical imaging applications, patient-positioners and table pads.  Finally, through its Composites Division, Creative Foam is a market leader in the manufacture and kitting of cores for turbine blade construction used in the wind energy market.
