Knauf Insulation is pleased to reveal that its Hartlepool manufacturing plant has secured a spot on the Hartlepool Business Awards shortlist, in the manufacturer of the year category.
Throughout the award entry Knauf Insulation demonstrated to the judges that it is consistently developing its products and processes to contribute towards a greener and more energy efficient environment, as well as being dedicated to investing in the local economy by working with local contractors and suppliers.
The Hartlepool manufacturing plant has reached zero waste to landfill and produces the first ever sustainable extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation product with a Green Guide rating of ‘A’. This year the plant is also investing a seven-figure sum in a new extruder facility, which will help boost the local economy and safeguard the future for its employees.
The winners will be announced at the awards dinner, which is being held at the Borough Hall, Hartlepool on Thursday 14th May 2015.
