L&P Sustainability Efforts: Chemical Safety

L&P is a relatively low-volume user of chemicals, with the largest use in our Specialty Foam business. These chemicals have low environmental impact as the manufacturing process yields a small amount of emissions by employing clean manufacturing technologies such as the use of MDI-based foams, as well as reactive and low-emission catalysts and surfactants.

Products meeting CertiPUR-US requirements meet strict clean limits for materials such as:

  • Ozone Depleting Compounds
  • PBDEs, TDCPP, or TCEP (“Tris”) flame retardants
  • Mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates

What the Covid-19 Pandemic Taught Us

The past year has shown us just how resilient our people really are. We asked several employees what the COVID-19 pandemic taught them.

Doors 2021: L&P Interns Connect Virtually

L&P’s Doors program helps interns learn, grow, and contribute. Over the years, interns have helped to change the landscape of IT, engineering, marketing, human resources, and accounting at Leggett & Platt.

This summer, a creative approach allowed our interns to still experience Doors while also staying safe throughout the pandemic. All events were delivered through virtual conference calls as our interns worked in remote or hybrid situations.

While these students were never able to meet face-to-face, they engaged through online development sessions and speed networking events. We’re very proud of them for embracing this unique working environment and thank them for sharing their incredible talents with L&P!

L&P Welcomes Leggett & Platt Aerospace Dunstable

In 2012, Leggett & Platt entered the aerospace industry by adding high-quality welded tubing used in critical aircraft systems to our company lineup. Producing these raw materials for the aerospace industry has led to even more opportunities for growth – including the acquisition of Meggitt Dunstable (now Leggett & Platt Aerospace Dunstable) earlier this year.

L&P Aerospace Dunstable is a UK-based company that specializes in full design, analysis, and development of high-pressure and high-temperature ducting, flexible joints, and components (including bellows, gimbals, and flexible metal hoses) for the space, military, and civil aerospace industries. Their capabilities also include testing and qualifying their products, a capability that sets them apart from other companies in the industry.

“L&P Aerospace has been looking to expand beyond build-to-print work for quite some time,” says Al Houde, VP of Sales for L&P Aerospace. “Our new Dunstable branch’s engineering, design, and testing capabilities really allow us to do that.”

Breaking into aerospace with raw tubing back in 2012 was only the first step in L&P’s vision to become a key player in the industry – but finding the right partners can take time and patience. “We’d been working on finding the right company that could help take us to the next level in the industry for a few years now,” Al explains. “This partnership is key to moving forward with our long-term strategic plans to advance in aerospace.”

Currently, L&P Aerospace features five other companies throughout the US, UK, and France, specializing in creating complex tubes and duct assemblies using high-performance materials capable of withstanding extreme pressure, temperature, and chemical reaction. Using top-of-the-line materials and state-of-the-art equipment gives L&P Aerospace the capability of customizing products to fit customers’ specifications.

Welcoming our new Dunstable branch to the L&P family only bolsters what we’re capable of achieving together. When asked about the benefits of our partnership, Al explains, “Dunstable is part of a company that looks to the long-term. I’m confident that our combined talents will take us both further than we can imagine.”
