Packing Material

Foam is extremely light as it is approximately 98 percent air, and therefore makes an ideal packaging product. It can also be moulded into an infinite variety of shapes and designs. Foam is an excellent shock absorber as well as being clean and safe to use. It can be treated so as to be anti-static and is therefore an excellent packaging material for electronics and computer components.

Celebrating 58 years,
heralding 58 Prominent enterprises

It has been another glorious year for the Bangkok Post a newspaper that prides itself on being Thailand's voice of the times. Backed by 58 years of publishing experience, the kingdom's leading English-language newspaper remains well ahead of the competition by exercising complete freedom of expression within our dynamic social environment. Certainly, we have evolved over time, constantly reinventing the Bangkok Post to suit the changing tastes and preferences of our readers. And yet the Bangkok Post still adheres to its core values of impartiality, accuracy and fair reporting and analysis to this day.

Founded shortly after World War II by Major Alexander MacDonald and Mr. Prasit Lulitanond,
the Bangkok Post has seen it all from the end of the war in 1945, the periods of the country's economic uncertainties and political upheavals, to the booming years of the Thai economy. It has been the privilege of the Bangkok Post throughout these years to capture almost every memorable episode of Thailand's development in print.

Today, after almost six decades of continuous publication, the Bangkok Post has become
a leader in the publishing industry, not only in Thailand but all over Asia. It is now a newspaper of editorial strength and corporate confidence, a newspaper with a remarkable history of milestone achievements that helped transform it into the distinguished institution that it is today. With its ever increasing circulation, it reaches more of the key people in Thailand than any other newspapers and performs a major service to the Thai community.

Today, on the occasion of the Bangkok Post's 58th anniversary, we convey our sincere appreciation for the support extended to us by the Thai and foreign business communities, and to the people who continue to trust the Bangkok Post as their marketing vehicle.

As we celebrate 58 years of the Bangkok Post, we give tribute to 58 exemplary companies in the pages that follow. We trust you will find reading about them as inspiring and informative as
we have investigating and profiling them.

Environmentally friendly foam
Most people take foam and polystyrene packaging products for granted, without realising the myriad applications foam has. Nor do they realise how environmentally friendly such products can be these days.
Most people come into contact with foam when it is used to pack their latest electronic purchase. But what they might not realise is that this versatile product is also used in cars, air-conditioning units and even as a building product for houses and roads.

For over 40 years, Thai Foam Group has been Thailand's leading producer of foam and foam products.

Specialising in the manufacture of a comprehensive range of foam goods, Thai Foam Group supplies many of the world's best known companies. Employing over 800 highly-skilled workers at six state-of-the-art factories all over Thailand, the group turns out a wide range of foam goods. Foam is used for packaging and insulation, as well as in many other products that are both exported and used in the domestic market. As such, Thai Foam Group not only contributes to the Thai economy but helps to enhance the country's reputation as a centre for high-quality manufactured goods.

The group's products are made from several kinds of foam, including:
- Expandable Polystyrene (EPS)
- Expandable Polyethylene (EPE)
- Expandable Polypropylene (EPP)
- Expandable Polyethylene/Polystyrene
Co Polymer (PIOCELAN)

These foams are used in a variety of products, including:

As it is approximately 98 per cent air, foam makes an ideal packaging product. It can be moulded into a variety of shapes and designs and is an excellent shock absorber.

Food containers
As well as being clean and hygienic, foam is also a great insulator and, as a result, is the perfect material for packaging food products.
Thai Foam Group uses no hazardous substances in any of its products, so customers are assured that their food is packed in the safest possible materials.
The group provides packing foam to the fast food industry and makes heat-resistant containers for instant meals.

Construction materials
Foam is used in many aspects of construction. It is an excellent insulator and is often used in housing to keep rooms cool or warm. It is also used as a foundation in engineering or building projects on soft ground.

Car parts
The Thai Foam Group helps to ensure the safety of drivers throughout the region by providing bumper cores (EPP or PIOCELAN moulded) and side-door safety cushions to some of the biggest names in motoring.

Home electronic parts and
other products

Among the many other products that use foam, and which are manufactured by Thai Foam Group, are parts for electronic machinery, such as refrigerators and air-conditioning units.
The group also manufactures safety helmets for motorcyclists, which can be treated so that they are waterproof and heat-resistant.

Decades of success
Thai Foam Group is one of Thailand's most successful businesses because it is constantly striving to improve its products and services for customers. In line with its pursuit of excellence, the group last year attained ISO 9001:2000 certification from TUV.
