Recticel to build new thermal insulation panels plant

The new plant will be located in the centre of France and employ some 50 people. The company's insulation business line manufactures rigid PU foam panels utilised for the thermal insulation of walls, floors and roofs in residential, commercial, industrial, public, logistics and agricultural buildings. The panels are used for new constructions as well as for renovation projects and are marketed under brand names such as Eurowall, Powerroof, Powerdeck and Powerwall.

Today the group operates from two production sites: one in Wevelgem, Belgium, and one in Stoke-on-Trent, UK. In 2009, Recticel's building insulation business realised a total turnover of EUR 150.5 million. With the new production site, the company aims to double its sales of insulation material in France. The new factory is expected to be operational by early 2013.
