"We are pleased to announce that the installation is proceeding on time and on cost," said Kingspan Insulation North America's Managing Director Alswinn Kieboom.
Once the project is completed, it will allow Kingspan Insulation to continue to service demand for its popular GreenGuard line of XPS board products, company officials said. The products boast superior moisture resistance, an R-value of 5.0 per inch of thickness and are suitable for a range of applications including cavity walls, continuous insulation, roofs, below-grade perimeter foundation and slab-on-grade.
