François-Xavier Reverdy, 14 September 1967 – 13 September 2017

Dear PU2PU members and customers,

We are very sad to announce the tragic death of François-Xavier Reverdy, President and owner of PU2U. He suddenly died from a heart attack the night before Wednesday, September 13th. François, after having worked as research engineer and market developer in the polyurethane industry, founded PU2PU in October 2004. He developed this original activity after two years of market study, investigations and software development.

PU2PU was quickly considered by the polyurethane community as a modern tool of communication to share information, allowing to consider that Francois was a precursor.

The PU2PU activities will slow down for a few weeks until his family and partners organize an effective way to continue his activity valuable for the actors of the PU supply chain. Our objective is to provide access to the PU Newsletter and the Urethane Update to the PU2PU members within one to two weeks in collaboration with his historical partner PU Magazine International. During this period, all PU2PU members will keep their rights to access the PU2PU website.

We hope you will understand this difficult situation and we will do our best to continue PU2PU activities as François-Xavier Reverdy and his team was doing for the past fifteen years, as soon as possible.

Antoine Reverdy, his brother, and the family
