The Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam recently announced it has appointed Michael Crowell executive director of the association and its CertiPUR-US® program. He succeeds Robert Duffy, who is retiring.

Crowell has more than 40 years of senior management experience in the polyurethane foam industry, including technical, manufacturing, sales and marketing positions. For the past 10 years, Crowell served as vice president of marketing and sales for Flexible Foam Products Inc., where he was responsible for government and industry product compliance. During the six years prior, he was vice president for automotive sales at Flexible Foam. 

Polyurethane foams that receive CertiPUR-US certification label are made without ozone depleters, formaldehyde, PBDE flame retardants, prohibited phthalates, lead, mercury, heavy metals, and other materials of concern, and are low emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million). Certified foams must also meet physical performance and durability standards. Certified foams are verified periodically through random testing.
