Kingspan Insulation is on course to add capacity to its manufacturing site in Winchester, Va. The company recently began a $25 million investment in the plant with the installation of a XPS insulation manufacturing line.
“We are pleased to announce that the installation is proceeding on time and on cost,” said Kingspan Insulation North America’s managing director Alswinn Kieboom.
Once the project is completed, it will allow Kingspan Insulation to continue to service demand for its GreenGuard line of XPS board products. The products boast moisture resistance, an R-value of 5.0 per inch of thickness and are suitable for a range of applications including cavity walls, continuous insulation, roofs, below-grade perimeter foundation and slab-on-grade.
As part of this investment program, Kingspan Insulation has announced its intent to begin production of polyiso insulation in North America.
Kingspan Insulation is currently appraising locations for 3 new manufacturing lines. Locations under consideration are at its existing plant in Virginia, at its sister company sites in California, Florida, Ohio, Ontario and British Columbia as well as sites in Nevada and Texas.
