​Overview

Manufacturers of polyurethane foam were accused of colluding to fix prices of polyurethane foam and polyurethane products in the US and Europe.  Polyurethane foam is used for cushioning and insulation in residential and commercial furnishing, bedding, flooring, automotive interiors, carpet underlay and in many industrial, packaging and technical applications.  In the US, the direct purchasers accuse the defendants of conspiring from January 1, 1999 to July 31, 2010 to fix the price of polyurethane foam.   In April 2013 Vitafoam and Vitafoam Products Canada agreed to pay over $10 million to claimants.
