Knauf Insulation has defied the recession with the announcement that it has acquired additional premises due to continued growth and to enhance the product portfolio available to customers.
As of December 14, Knauf Insulation, the UK’s leading manufacturer of insulation products, will take over the Alexandra Warehouse (formerly the Alexandra Indoor Sports Centre) which will be used as an additional storage area for products pre-delivery. The acquisition is due to Knauf Insulation’s continued growth, especially in the export market and to improve service to customers through a wider product offering.
John Sinfield, Managing Director at Knauf Insulation said; “Despite the challenging economic environment, we’ve had a good year and have continued to grow. This has largely been due to expansion in the export market.”
“We’re committed to securing jobs in the area and investing in the local economy and that’s why it was important for us to find the right facilities within St Helens. When we became aware that the property was back on the market we moved quickly to invest locally.”
Knauf Insulation is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing insulation companies and the UK’s leading manufacturer of insulation products. It is renowned for its strong environmental credentials and having the widest range of products for thermal, acoustic and fire protection applications.
