The Kingspan Group was founded in 1972 as a small family business in the Republic of Ireland. The Group was initially involved in manufacturing metal cladding and roll-formed structural sections. During the early 80s and 90s, the Group expanded into manufacturing insulated panels and insulation products, and established manufacturing plants in the U.K., Ireland and throughout Europe.
Kingspan entered the North American market in 2007 with the acquisition of Zeroloc and Coldmatic companies in Canada. In August 2008, Kingspan acquired the Metecno group of companies in Deland, Fla., Modesto, Calif., and Columbus, Ohio. Most recently, effective October 1st 2010 Kingspan US and Kingspan Canada integrated into a single business – Kingspan Insulated Panels North America
The integration positions the company to deliver improved service offerings, provide a more complete product selection and implement industry best work practices, leveraging the combined capabilities of the previously separate companies and the broader resources of Kingspan global operations.
