Rochester Hills, Michigan— Vince Scattolino, vice president of product development and innovation at Sinomax, has been elected to the board of directors of the Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam, the not-for-profit organisation that administers the CertiPUR-US foam certification programme.
He has been described as ‘a wonderful addition to the board because he has a combination of consumer product, bedding, and polyurethane expertise’ by Mike Crowell, CertiPUR-US’s executive director.
Scattolino has been involved with the polyurethane and bedding industries for nearly 25 years. After first working in product development for the Scott Paper Company, he moved to ARCO Chemical and then FXI (formerly Foamex), where he was director of national accounts, including Sealy and other major bedding companies.
Scattolino also served as senior vice president of product development, commercialisation and innovation for Sleep Innovations. In returning to FXI for a second term, Scattolino was responsible for building the company’s consumer products business. Most recently, he joined Sinomax.
