Four decades of industry leadership
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, and in a few short years became the largest volume seller on the continent. Today we reach a global market, with manufacturing, distribution and commercial operations throughout Europe, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the Far East.
With nearly 40% of the energy we consume in the US consumed by buildings structures, it's clear to see that prioritizing high thermal performance is key to conserving natural resources. The Kingspan Group is dedicated to reducing energy waste by optimizing the building envelope. Our single component panels form the basis of complete building envelope systems, which maximize thermal performance while simplifying design and construction.

The future is Net Zero
At Kingspan, we see a clear path to energy neutral design. We've made a commitment to reaching Net Zero in our own facilities by the year 2020. We are on track to be halfway there by 2015.
We strive for the highest level of material and sustainability transparency in our operations.
