Worldwide Foam Ltd. has joined the growing number of companies that are leveraging the benefits of the Reusable Packaging Association (RPA). The company joined the RPA during the recent Modex show in Atlanta.

Worldwide Foam is a supplier of crosslinked polyethylene foam, a high density closed cell foam characterized by a compact feel and resistance to water that enables the material to be fabricated, thermoformed or compression molded in many ways. The company partners with manufacturers around the world in order to secure the highest quality material at competitive pricing. It has offices in Elkart, Ind., and Corona, Calif..

“We joined the RPA to make new connections with other providers of returnable packaging,” said Donald Frandsen, General Manager at Worldwide Foam and Executive Representative to the RPA. “We hope our membership will strengthen our reach as we expand our business into new industries.”

“The opportunity to create new business relationships is one of the many benefits offered by the RPA,” said Jerry Welcome, President, RPA. “And Worldwide Foam broadens the reach of the RPA by bringing its unique expertise from a different segment of the reusables supply chain.”
