We are a manufacturer of urethane panels that range in size from 11.5" x 70" to 46" x 300". They are mostly moved throughout the plant manually. Our goal is to find a way to minimize the lifting of the panels while being moved from the foaming fixtures to shipping. Our website can show you our panels.



Our mission is to help bring the real-world into the classroom by providing engineering students with practical hands-on experience through industry-sponsored and client-based capstone design projects. Since its inception, the Learning Factory has completed more than 1,800 projects for more than 500 different sponsors, and nearly 9,000 engineering students at Penn State University Park participated in such a project.
