Meet our Innovators

From Cavan to Global and Back

When you think Kingspan do you think large corporation? What about local…no?

While we do have 10,000 plus employees globally and 100 manufacturing facilities spread over 70 countries there are a few facts you may not know…

Such as, did you also know 9 of those manufacturing sites are here in Ireland? Did you also know that the Global Innovation Centre for the entire company is also based in Ireland? Or how about the fact that are 900 people directly employed by Kingspan in Ireland alone.

Would it surprise you to know that our business started in Kingscourt Co.Cavan and that our headquarters for the entire company worldwide are still there today?

Kingspan was started in 1963 by Eurgene Murtagh from the backyard of his family home and business Murtagh’s Pub. Now our headquarters sit on a site not far from there. In fact Eugene is still chairman of our board.

We have been manufacturing insulation on this site in Castleblayney since the 1980’s. We export to the UK, USA, Europe and Australia all from this plant here in Co. Monaghan. We are a very tight group of staff and some of us have been with the company for over 30 years.

We are very lucky to have such a wealth of knowledge and expertise here in Kingspan Insulation. Our team work together to deliver innovative products that are used in buildings all over Ireland. We decided it was about time we let the team speak for themselves.
