Our CEO Jean-Claude Carlin said: “The award recognises the commitment of the whole Group to creating solutions to challenges faced by customers, colleagues and our planet. It is an award that shows we care — something we are all proud of.”

Joachim Wieltschnig, Technical Director and Head of the Business Unit Heraklith® says it makes the company very proud to be part of Knauf Insulation. “Heraklith’s long history is one of continuously looking for better ways to work with Wood Wool to meet the needs of customers around the world, with sustainable products,” he added. “Recognition as the global leader in insulation is a nice achievement to coincide with our 110th anniversary this year.”  

Energy efficiency, environmental impact and climate change as well as new trends, research and developments were all on the agenda at the annual two-day conference.

Among the news highlights, delegates heard how the European insulation market is currently growing faster than construction and that payback in industry was even higher than in residential buildings.
