Knauf Insulation has appointed a new product manager to lead the development of its Rock Mineral Wool range.

Luke Davies joins from architectural aluminium manufacturer Kawneer and brings extensive product marketing experience in sectors including construction, retail and technology.

Luke said: “Knauf Insulation’s longstanding reputation for quality, innovation and sustainability has seen it become one of the best-known names in the industry.

“Its ethos of constantly evolving its offering to meet customers’ challenges means it has helped contribute to improved insulation in countless buildings in the UK, raising the performance of the built environment as a whole.

“As the only manufacturer of both Rock and Glass Mineral Wool products, I believe Knauf Insulation is uniquely placed to provide the best solution for each application, and I’m looking forward to working closely with our customers to develop Rock Mineral Wool insulation solutions that meet their needs even further.”

Rock Mineral Wool is especially well suited to applications where strength and resilience of the insulation itself are the  priorities, and where there is a need for the best level of resistance to fire or high temperatures.

Steve Smith, Head of Product Management and Business Intelligence at Knauf Insulation, said: “Our Mineral Wool insulation solutions are already at the cutting edge of insulation performance. Over the years, we have brought to the market innovations that really matter; ECOSE® Technology, our revolutionary sustainable bio-based binder, is still a unique technology that sets us apart. It is 70% less energy intensive than traditional chemical-based binders, it avoids the use of petrochemicals, and it helps maintain the indoor air quality of buildings by releasing no harmful emissions.

“Luke’s proven track record puts him in good stead to understand further the needs and challenges of our customers as well as the industry, so we develop new solutions that deliver additional value and make the world a better place.”
