Kingspan Innovation

Never settle.
Always innovate.

Since the beginning, Kingspan has been committed to innovation so we can make building better. It’s something we demonstrate daily in the work we produce across our business. We believe we have to challenge building industry traditions through innovating in advanced materials and digital technologies to achieve a net zero emissions future. Kingspan’s products and systems therefore ensure higher lifetime energy and carbon savings.

Innovation Partnerships & Funding

R&D Initiatives in this company are co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020. The co-funded initiatives will focus on developing new products and processes, increasing R&D activity which will drive company development. 

Innovation Driven

The world is rapidly changing. Global challenges such as climate change, circularity, well-being and digitalisation transform how we design, build, operate and dispose. That’s why Kingspan has created IKON; our global innovation hub. The building itself is a showcase for high-performance envelope design using 18 Kingspan products and systems. Both a place of research and a living research project, IKON asks the big questions that will lead us to a more sustainable and healthy future while delivering enhanced value, convenience and efficiencies to our customers. Take a tour through IKON with Mike Stenson, Global Head of Innovation, Kingspan Group.
