FXI Foamex Innovations Announces New Safety Record

Achievement for its Cornelius, NC Manufacturing Facility


December 28, 2009 - FXI Foamex Innovations today announced on December 23rd. a new safety record achievement for its Cornelius, NC manufacturing facility. The Cornelius Facility manufactures flexible polyurethane foam products used in the production of mattresses for the bedding industry as well as foam products for the automotive and furniture industries.  


The Cornelius Facility broke its prior safety record by surpassing the one-year mark without an OSHA recordable incident.  Further, the last lost time injury was in June of 2008.  In recognition of this accomplishment, FXI Foamex Innovations sponsored a Safety Appreciation Day event for the 95 employees at the Cornelius facility on December 18, 2009.  


Richard Centeno, plant manager of FXI Cornelius said, “This new record is a testament to the safety culture and awareness that every FXI employee takes seriously.  I'm very proud of our employees. They have diligently followed proper procedures, donned personal protective equipment every time and are always looking out for their fellow coworkers.  It is a substantial achievement worthy of management accolades and congratulations.”  


The year began with the unveiling of the 2009 Cornelius Employee Participation Program.  The program was developed with an emphasis on employee training in safe work practices, increasing hazard awareness and reflecting the importance of safety in their workplace.  Events for the Safety Day celebration included a dinner, award presentations, and a commemorative gift for all employees.  


“It is assuring to know that I am able to go out on the production floor and that it’s safe to do my job without fear of injury,” said Scott Robeson, production control manager of FXI Cornelius. “In addition, I feel confident knowing it is safe to bring vendors, customers and visitors into an environment that we can be proud of.”
