The new facility to produce Kingspan’s latest optimised building solutions.

Kingspan plans Dubai plant expansion

DUBAI, May 19, 2015

Kingspan Insulated Panels, a global leader in high performance building envelope technologies, is carrying out an extensive expansion of its manufacturing plant in Dubai.

The new facility will produce Kingspan’s latest optimised building solutions and serve as a regional hub to meet the rapidly growing demand for energy efficient buildings in the GCC, and East and South Africa.

Central to the upgrade is the addition of a new production line for IPN QuadCore, Kingspan’s game-changing hybrid insulation core.

Engineered with phenolic chemistry, IPN QuadCore sets new thermal, fire, environmental and guarantee standards for insulated panels. IPN QuadCore outperforms all other building technologies to create the most cost-effective, optimised buildings possible.

“This investment marks another milestone in Kingspan’s commitment to serve our customers across the globe and bring them the most advanced building technologies available,” said Gilbert McCarthy, managing director, Kingspan Insulated Panels.

The £10 million ($15.69 million) investment will see the current plant in Dubai Industrial Park expand to 7,000 sq m and reach a production capacity that runs into millions of sq m of market-leading insulated panels.

In addition to the new production line for architectural wall and roof panels, the improved facility will include an extension to the current manufacturing plant, which will feature the Kingspan energy cost-saving rooftop solar PV system.

Customers in the region will benefit from the complete range of Kingspan’s high performance building solutions. Its envelope systems, which include Kingspan insulated roof and wall panels, standing seam systems and benchmark architectural façades, are combined with integrated energy solutions, like the innovative Kingspan Photovoltaic and ZerO Energy lighting systems, to deliver buildings that generate their own energy and optimise performance thereby minimising energy consumption and costs.

Lance Wilson, managing director at Kingspan Rigidal, said: “The region continues to be defined by investment in major infrastructure projects. Expo 2020 Dubai and the Qatar 2022 World Cup are fuelling demand for large-scale commercial and industrial buildings.

“This trend, coupled with a growing appreciation for more cost-effective, energy efficient building stock, means Kingspan is well-placed to meet the needs of building owners, specifiers and contractors in these markets,” he added.  - TradeArabia News Service
