Freefoam launch video to acknowledge 30 year anniversary

  • 15 Jul 2020

Freefoam Building Products has released a video to highlight and celebrate its 30 year anniversary, bringing the Freefoam story to life and highlights some of the key milestones in this inspiring journey.

Featuring an informative interview with Chairman and founding Director Tony Walsh, and Managing Director Aidan Harte, areas covered include the principles behind the company and how Freefoam started from very humble beginnings in Cork, with just one extruder and eight people and has expanded to become a business with three operational locations, Ireland, the UK and France employing more than 300 team members.


Tony Walsh (above, left) commented: “We are very proud of Freefoam and what we have achieved. This video has given me a welcome opportunity to reflect on the milestones we have reached and to thank our team members and customers for their fantastic support, loyalty and commitment over the years. 30 years is a tremendous achievement and we couldn’t have done it without them.”

A story of 30 years inevitably features a huge range of data and statistics – this video has been edited to project these facts and figures on to the interviews to help illustrate key events, innovations and milestones that have taken place over that time. 

Aidan Harte (above, right) added: “In turbulent times being a stable, financially secure and reliable company is more important than ever. This video illustrates how Freefoam has grown and developed to become one of the major forces within the PVC building product market and with planned investment and growth strategies is set to be around for many more years.”
