Saint-Gobain to invest £20m for new Celotex insulation production facility
Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, the leader in the habitat and construction materials market are to invest £20million in a production facility for insulation specialists Celotex.
A planning application has been submitted for a brand new production facility for Celotex, the UK’s largest supplier of PIR insulation boards. This new facility will be located next to Saint-Gobain’s Glass manufacturing facility in Eggborough, with expected production due to begin in Spring 2017.
Celotex has been operating successfully for 90 years and making PIR in the UK since 1980. The company now employs over 220 people at its only production site in Suffolk, where there are two similar production lines to the one that will be constructed at the new facility in Eggborough. Celotex has a strong focus on innovation, technical support to the construction industry and delivering high standards of customer service. This investment will enable Celotex to ensure it continues to meet the needs of the developing market for insulation products in the UK, while also meeting the future needs of its customers.
