A subsidiary of UK-based Kingspan Ltd., Kingspan Insulated Panels Inc. is focused on the design, manufacture and supply of high-performance building products and solutions for the construction industry worldwide. The selection of its DeLand facility as the firm’s new North American headquarters means the retention of 50 jobs, the addition of 30 more and a capital investment of $2.5 million.
