IKO Insulations – from foundation to factory

2018 was another exciting year in the history of IKO, as we opened our first insulation plant in the UK.

The new factory is an all-round ‘good news’ story representing a significant investment that will make a significant contribution to the construction industry and the local community – creating up to 160 jobs in the area.

The end product produced is PIR (polyisocyanurate) insulation boards to be used in cavity walls, external walls, floors, and of course roofs and more, helping make buildings more energy efficient reducing carbon emissions and cutting fuel bills.

The factory has the capacity to produce insulation for approximately 40,000 homes a year which will go a long way towards achieving the Climate Change Act’s current target of reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.
