Our Roots in Recycling
Our roots trace back to the founding of United States-based company Federal International in 1914 as a pioneer in paper recycling. In the mid sixties, polyurethane foam was developed, which created a need to recycle the trim by-product from the manufacturing process. Federal International expanded its recycling reach to Europe to purchase trim for the United States carpet underlay industry.
As its purchasing power and supplier relationships grew, Federal International created the company Agglorex in 1972 in Belgium to manufacture its surplus trim foam into a recycled rebond foam product that had numerous desirable qualities and new application possibilities.
In 2021, Agglorex was rebranded to Federal Eco Foam, fully combining the European operations of trim trade and rebond foam manufacturing into a single entity. Federal Eco Foam is owned by parent company Federal International Inc. and part of the Federal International group of companies that includes sister companies Federal Recycling & Waste Solutions and Federal Foam Technologies.
