Headquartered in Conover, North Carolina, HSM Foam produces flexible polyurethane foam. HSM Foam provides hundreds of foam formulations for furniture, bedding, medical and packaging market applications.

Through the combination of Pacific Urethanes, Elite Foam, and HSM Foam, Arsenal is building Elite Comfort Solutions into a leading specialty foam platform.

Elite Comfort Solutions will have an initial national network of 10 production facilities and the company will leverage its range of technologies and product innovation across the consolidated company.

The management teams at each of the three businesses will continue to operate under Elite Comfort Solutions.

Arsenal Capital Partners invests in middle market healthcare and specialty industrial companies.
