NCFI Polyurethanes’ 46 Years of Spray Foam Manufacturing Experience Gives Customers an Advantage Selecting and Purchasing the Right Equipment

MOUNT AIRY, NC—In 1967, after three years in business, NCFI became one of the first US companies to begin formulating and manufacturing spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation. Since those early days they’ve become not only one of the country’s most successful systems houses, but also one of the largest suppliers of SPF equipment. Business Development Director, Mitch Clifton says their success with equipment is directly related to their longevity and success as a manufacturer.

“We know SPF insulation inside and out,” says Clifton. “We’ve spent every day of the last 46 years studying and working with it, formulating and manufacturing, marketing, distributing, and helping our customers around the US learn to best use it. We’ve manufactured and sold millions of pounds of SPF—so if anyone is an SPF expert, it’s NCFI. And that experience with foam means we also have to be experts with the equipment it takes to apply it.”

Clifton says his company was one of the “third or fourth customers” of Graco, Inc., the world’s premier manufacturers of fluid-handling equipment and systems, when they got into the spray foam insulation equipment business. “We only offer our contractors the very best guns, reactors and proportioners, hoses, air dryers, airless sprayers, transfer pumps, accessories, and safety gear—equipment we’ve tested and believe in—because we’re so intimately involved in our customer’s success. I challenge you to find better trailers and rigs.”


According to Clifton, “Our equipment sales and service used to be something we did for customers who asked for our help, now it’s a big part of our 360 degree customer success program. We’ve learned that working with our customers after the sale of SPF—whether that’s training with applications, building science, on site technical support, job leads, or equipment selection, sales, training, service and troubleshooting—is what grows long-term partnerships and mutual prosperity.”

Clifton says NCFI’s industry experience gives customers a definitive edge when it comes to helping select the right equipment, training, support, and technical advice. “Plus, we provide two days of technical service set-up at no cost to the customer to make certain they have the skills and knowledge to operate the equipment in a safe and efficient way.” He adds their integrated holistic approach to customers’ business is, “why NCFI is turning 50 next year, and looking forward to the next 50.”
