Eugene Murtagh formed the Kingscourt Construction Group founded in 1965 in Kingscourt, Co. Cavan. Following several acquisitions, the business was renamed Kingspan Group in 1983 and began trading on the Unlisted Securities Market.
In subsequent years, Kingspan grew rapidly by a combination of acquisition and globalisation. Heavy investment in R&D led to the Kingspan Group becoming global leaders in high-performance insulation. Kingspan Light + Air was launched in 2016 to serve the need for healthy, natural daylighting and ventilation solutions in buildings. Kingspan Facades was launched in 2018 to meet the need for complete façade solutions with high aesthetic values.
Today, Kingspan is a global leader in insulation and envelope solutions for high-performance, low-carbon buildings. With 8 businesses operating in Ireland and the global Kingspan Group still headquartered in Kingscourt, we are committed to enabling better building performance.
