Styrofoam made Huntsman rich, but candidate's role in the family business remains unclear

You probably don't know it, but you likely encounter subtle reminders of Jon Huntsman's presidential campaign frequently in your day-to-day activities. That's because Huntsman Corp., the company started by the former Utah governor's father in 1970, manufacturers chemicals that are used in everything from food packaging to fertilizer to car dashboards -- and even your Nike running shoes. Huntsman Corp. is pivotal to the Republican's presidential aspirations. His campaign website touts his involvement as an executive at the company and, in particular, his work to help save the company from collapse in 1985. A closer look, however, reveals few specifics about Huntsman's role in a company that by most accounts has been run by his father and brother Peter, the company's CEO since 2000.
