    Innovative Brampton-based company and Board of Trade members Armacell Canada Inc have been selected as finalists for an Ontario Business Achievement Award from Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

    Armacell has been a leader in energy saving foam insulation since 1954. The business develops flexible insulation foam products for the insulation of mechanical equipment in markets where energy distribution is required, such as in commercial and residential construction, industrial applications, and the oil and gas industry.

    Recently the company launched an environmentally friendly and sustainable process for making wind turbines that utilize water bottles through their groundbreaking product ArmaFoam. 

    ArmaForm is a foam core material that starts its life as post-consumer waste in the form of water bottles and other packaging waste. It is made from PET, which is a much easier way of saying “polyethylene terephthalate.

    Water bottles are shredded to create something known as PET flake, which is then used to manufacture the foam core. The end product is a lightweight, durable and completely recyclable product that is usually covered in metal when it's used.
    By using PET waste in their products, Armacell is taking hundreds of thousands of plastic bottles and turning them into a useful raw material, effectively preventing them from ending up in landfills.

    Armacell will go up against one other company in their category. Stay tuned to find out in November whether they bring home the win. Congratulations Armacell!
