Foam and sponge rubber manufacturers often contract with certain companies to provide regular services. They may deal directly with manufacturers, or work in conjunction with distributors. Professionals within this industry must be proficient in all aspects of foam and sponge rubber, in all its many applications. This lightweight, flexible, closed cell material provides not only shock absorption but permeability to various types of products.
Because of its density, it's easy to fabricate, expand, and mold into different products, such as mattresses, insulation spray, and furniture cushions. Some dealers sell primarily to the upholstery industry, while others may concentrate on the automotive industry.
Typical services include same-day shipping, online ordering, account management, low delivery rates, and online catalogs. Many companies operate online, but some do operate out of a warehouse or store front. Custom sheets and other products are another service typically offered by these suppliers. Customers can get rate quotes online or by giving the company a call.
Experienced sales associates can provide basic information for clients, setting them up with the silicone, polyurethane, or neoprene orders they need. Whether closed cell sponge or cross linked polyethylene, manufacturers also offer bulk discounts when customers order lots of products at once.
Sales associates can give price quotes and advise on the best items for the cost. Manufacturers that make these materials use state-of-the-art machines and equipment to produce foam and sponge rubber. Customers may deal regularly with the same associates when they need to restock.
