Globalisation

Globalisation of Kingspan remains central to our ongoing progress. During 2017 we further expanded our manufacturing footprint by investing in partnerships in Brazil and Colombia. These acquisitions firmly place Kingspan in a market leading position across Latin America, a new frontier for Kingspan, with a strong platform for further growth in the region.

We continue to evolve into a truly global business: 
  • Increasingly diversified geography base: UK and Ireland sales comprised 31% of Group sales during 2016 compared to 74% in 2006.
  • Sales in the Americas were 20% of Group sales during 2016, up from 5% in 2006, as a consequence of organic growth and the Group’s acquisition of Vicwest Building Products in 2015.
