LOUDON, Tenn. - Joseph Progar, executive vice president of Advanced Urethane Technologies/Sleep Innovations, has been elected president of the industry trade group the Polyurethane Foam Assn.

"I look forward to continuing to be part of the very effective and important advocacy work being done by the PFA, and to reinforcing those efforts with new initiatives that strengthen our industry."
