Governor Glenn Youngkin said: “Kingspan Insulation has been a valued employer in Virginia for more than four decades, and we are proud to see the company reinvest in Frederick County.”

He said: “This great project is a win-win, as Kingspan will increase production capacity to expand its East Coast presence while also creating 37 high-quality jobs, tapping into the region’s workforce.”

Kingspan Insulation creates insulation, building wraps, and pre-insulated HVAC ducting for new construction and remodelling in residential and commercial structures.

They will use methods to increase sustainability while constructing the facility, such as replacing removed trees, using translucent wall panels to allow natural lighting, installing photovoltaic roofing (solar panels or cells), and recycling rainwater.
