Americas Cast Elastomers, Filtration, E&E and Subsea.
Clarksburg, WV – September 2017 – STOCKMEIER Urethanes Group is pleased to
announce that Ben Blundell has been appointed a new position within the

Ben, originally from the United Kingdom, has over 20 years of experience in the
polyurethane industry. He began his career working for his family company, Greenfield
Polymers, and learned the polyurethane business from the ground up in every aspect of
the company and became the General Manager. Greenfield Polymers was a rapidly
growing company that concentrated on emerging markets and technologies such as
electrical potting, elastomers, filters and oil and gas applications. With this expansion,
Ben became a Sales Manager that focused on international markets to establish export
and import opportunities as well as lead the company on the commercial front.

houses at the time, was sold to STOCKMEIER Urethanes GmbH & Co. With this
merger, Ben became the Sales Director for STOCKMEIER Urethanes UK as well as

was very successful at creating substantial growth, as well as building strong
partnerships with distribution.

and CEO of STOCKMEIER Urethanes USA, Inc. “Ben’s experience, dedication to the
polyurethane industry and our customers make him a great addition to our team.”
