Foam Makers to Pay $128.5 million to Settle More US Suits
Jun 23 15
Six polyurethane-foam makers have proposed paying up to $128.5 million to settle another batch of US lawsuits that accused them of fixing prices. The lead lawyer representing the customers that sued the foam companies did not immediately respond to a request for comment on June 23, 2015. The settlement agreements still need to be approved by the court. The dispute goes back to 2010, when customers accused the foam companies of fixing prices since at least 1 January 1999. The buyers alleged they had paid too much for foam. The latest settlement would cover the so-called indirect purchasers. These are customers who bought finished products made from the producers' foam. Under the proposed settlements, Carpenter would pay $63.5 million, and Hickory Springs Manufacturing would pay up to $10.25 million. Leggett & Platt would pay $26.5 million, while Mohawk would pay $16 million. Vitafoam would pay $2.75 million, and Woodbridge would pay $9.5 million. Earlier, the direct purchasers had reached a $275.5 million settlement with another group of foam makers. The direct purchasers bought the foam to make bed mattresses, furniture, carpet and other products that were ultimately sold to the indirect purchasers. Under the agreements, $16 million would be paid by FFP Holdings, formerly known as Flexible Foam Products. Future Foam agreed to pay $32 million, and FXI - Foam Innovations would pay $60 million. It is unclear if FFP Holdings, Future Foam or FXI - Foam Innovations are still involved in the indirect purchasers litigation. They may have reached settlements or obtained dismissals. None of the three companies immediately responded to requests for comment. Mohawk agreed to pay $98 million, while Woodbridge would pay $50 million. Hickory Springs agreed to pay $19.5 million. Other foam producers had reached settlements with the direct purchasers earlier in the litigation. Carpenter agreed to pay $108 million, while Leggett & Platt agreed to $39.8 million. Both companies denied that they fixed prices or did anything wrong. Vitafoam had agreed to pay up to $15 million. It also denied doing anything wrong. Polyurethane foams are made with polyols and isocyanates such as methyl di-p-phenylene isocyanate (MDI) and toluene di-isocyanate (TDI). The case is being litigated in US District Court, Northern Ohio District. The case number is 10-2196.
