Carlisle Construction Materials, a leading manufacturer of building materials for the roofing, waterproofing, insulation and HVAC industries, has acquired Insulfoam from privately-held Premier Industries of Tacoma, Wash. Insulfoam is a leading manufacturer of block-molded expanded polystyrene (EPS) products used primarily as insulation in the building and construction industry.
With nearly 750 employees and 13 production and fabrication facilities across the U.S., Insulfoam will operate as a stand-alone entity within CCM.
Carlisle President and CEO John Altmeyer said, “Insulfoam and its talented people will be an excellent addition to Carlisle Construction Materials. Carlisle and its divisions already participate strongly in energy saving building products. This will enhance Carlisle’s overall offerings for building owners, architects and contractors who want to promote and utilize energy-efficient construction products.”
Insulfoam’s broad product offering includes wall and door insulation, terrain stabilizer, concrete and wood building panels and architectural forms. Insulfoam also participates in the roofing insulation market, primarily in the commercial, single-ply segment. Insulfoam’s technical capabilities in design, materials, code approvals and testing provide a foundation for the company’s continued development of EPS as an innovative material substitution in other industrial markets.
Insulfoam will join six companies that currently make up CCM: Carlisle SynTec, Versico, EcoStar, Hunter Panels, Carlisle Coatings & Waterproofing (CCW) and Hardcast. Carlisle SynTec and Versico offer premium single-ply roofing systems for the commercial roofing industry; EcoStar offers premium, recycled roofing tiles for the steep-slope roofing industry; Hunter Panels manufactures polyiso insulation for the entire roofing industry; CCW is a leading manufacturer of waterproofing and roofing underlayment products, while Hardcast services the HVAC and ductwork industries.
