About Us

Zotefoams plc is committed to delivering optimal material solutions for the benefit of society. We are an award-winning global supplier of advanced foams that save weight and fuel in cars, trains and aircraft, save energy by insulating, and provide protection for people and goods.

Zotefoams three stage process 2020

The Zotefoams difference: Zotefoams manufactures a wide range of crosslinked, lightweight block foams using variations of our unique nitrogen-expansion manufacturing process. This affords an exclusive combination of beneficial characteristics – uniformity, purity, low toxicity and durability – that differentiates Zotefoams’ materials from all other foams. Our core autoclave process is capital-intensive, with a long investment cycle, and represents a considerable barrier to entry for potential competitors.

Our unique manufacturing process – invented over 100 years ago – creates a real competitive advantage, producing materials that are purer, lighter and more durable than alternatives, and making Zotefoams the supplier of choice to many global brands. With our third global foam manufacturing plant now in production and the launch of a game-changing development in consumer packaging, there has never been a more exciting time to be part of the Zotefoams team.

Zotefoams is a pioneering materials technology company with unique technology that enables us to create and produce unique products.    

Zotefoams uses its environmentally friendly nitrogen expansion technology to foam a variety of advanced polymers, many of which have never been foamed before. 

We are a global organisation with head quarters in Croydon and we supply to leading brands in the aviation, automotive, packaging and sportswear markets. 

The graduate scheme consists of either two or three placements in the organisation which could be in a wide range of different departments such as but not limited to, process engineering, R&D, sales, health and safety or project management. You will have at least one placement which is commercially linked and one which is more engineering focussed. In addition, you will be able to shadow other areas of the organisation including quality, process engineering, supply chain, production and sales.

You will be ambitious and self-driven with a degree in materials engineering or a similar subject line.

In addition you will be able to demonstrate:

  • The ability to make good decisions
  • The ability to work well in a team
  • The ability to apply learning
  • The ability to overcome obstacles


Zotefoams is based on the A236 between Mitcham and Croydon.  It is served by regular bus and tram services connecting to Wimbledon, Croydon, East Croydon, Morden, Mitcham Junction, Tooting and Tooting Broadway.
