Kingspan Insulated Panels North America announced it will be opening a new facility in Mattoon, Illinois. The new facility will manufacture Kingspan’s K-Roc products to help meet growing demand.

Kingspan’s K-Roc insulated metal panel (IMP) series is known to provide superior fire protection due to its mineral fiber insulation core. One of the K-Roc products that will be manufactured at the Mattoon facility is the K-Roc HF Series. Announced just last year, the HF Series, available in 4-inch, 6-inch and 8-inch thicknesses, delivers up to a three-hour fire rating in wall applications and one-hour fire rating in ceiling applications. The HF Series is available in five different profiles with external and internal skins available in embossed or non-embossed finishes, fitting a wide range of aesthetic styles.

The K-Roc series is currently only manufactured in Kingspan’s Langley facility in British Columbia, Canada. With the new Mattoon site, Kingspan will have two strategic locations to take advantage of business growth across North America. 

“As a result of continued growth and optimism for the future, the addition of this new facility complements our existing footprint in North America, giving us better access to our customer base,” said Alswinn Kieboom, president of Kingspan Insulated Panels North America. “We are looking forward to launching this new site and having a presence in the Midwest.”

The Mattoon facility will include sustainability upgrades to help Kingspan meet its global sustainability initiative, Planet Passionate. The 10-year sustainability program aims to have a positive impact on three global challenges: climate change, circularity and the protection of the natural world. The Mattoon facility will feature solar roof panels, a rainwater harvesting tank, energy-efficient LED lighting, electric vehicle charging stations and a recycling system to help reduce landfill waste.  

The Mattoon facility is expected to open in early 2025, bringing approximately 50 new jobs to the area.
