Kingspan Insulated Panels Inc. was privileged to host U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, Florida Dist. 6, during a brief visit and plant tour at Kingspan North America’s Headquarters in DeLand. Congressman DeSantis met with Kingspan marketing, sustainability, and plant management representatives to learn more about the Kingspan business and dialogue about the company’s efforts toward sustainable initiatives in government and in the industries served by the company.
The visit, which lasted a little over an hour, began with a presentation to the congressman by Paul Bertram, Kingspan’s North American Director of Environment and Sustainability. Bertram’s talk featured details about Kingspan’s growth and activities, and focused on the importance of their insulated metal panel and complimentary products line to sustainable design and construction. Bertram also discussed current proposed energy efficiency legislation in congress and explained how Kingspan’s business aligns with these efforts both in terms of the types of products they manufacture for a variety of industries as well as within Kingspan’s internal business goals and initiatives.
Kingspan manufactures insulated metal panels which are used to create building exteriors with appealing aesthetic style and variety, and are exceptionally energy efficient. Exteriors built with Kingspan panels reduce installation labor, while increasing thermal continuity and energy performance throughout a facility’s life cycle.
Of particular interest to Kingspan are several energy and sustainability related initiatives which the company believes can strengthen the green building industry in the US. The meeting with Congressman DeSantis provided an opportunity for Kingspan to share why the company feels these are worthy of support and consideration from the 6th district of Florida and the country as a whole.
