MOUNTAIRY, NC—NCFI Polyurethanes officially launched its new online informative and educational content presence today: www.NCFI.com. The new website replaces the former corporate site, and eight former brand-specific sites.
“We found we need to roll everything up under the NCFI umbrella,” says Chip Holton, President of NCFI. “We turned fifty last year, and our name is well-known and trusted for experience producing the highest quality American engineered and manufactured products. We wanted our web presence to reflect that, and help our customers around the world get what they need quickly and with ease.”
