The first insulation plant of the IKO Insulations Group was commissioned in 1999. This site – a pioneer in insulation production – developed and optimised the PIR technology.
High River, Alberta
A new production site was commissioned in High River in 2005. This plant had to provide an answer to the logistic and transport challenges associated with the market for insulation products, which had expanded in the meantime.
Klundert, the Netherlands
The IKO plant for PIR production in Klundert, the Netherlands, was commissioned in 2006. It comprises a state-of-the-art production line that employs the latest technology and chemistry to manufacture different types of IKO enertherm boards in various dimensions, depending on the application.
The production plant in Combronde, France, was commissioned at the start of 2014. Like the factory in the Netherlands, it employs the most advanced production processes, with a specific focus on ecology and sustainability.
The introduction of this second production unit in Europe is part of IKO Insulations’ growth strategy in Europe.
