We have two manufacturing plants in the UK. We have invested more than £100 million in the most advanced manufacturing technology to make us one of the largest suppliers of gypsum-based building materials in the UK.
Constructed in 1988, the Sittingbourne Plasterboard Plant was up and running from a greenfield site to working factory in less than twelve months.
The production system, which was engineered and designed using the most modern manufacturing technologies, enables the production of a wide range of superior quality standard and high performance plasterboards and insulating laminates.
The Sittingbourne facility is also the location of the UK Powder Plant which was added in 1993 and produces a comprehensive range of products including Knauf Plasterboard Adhesive.
Immingham, North East Lincolnshire
Following the success of the Sittingbourne Plant, construction on a second UK Plasterboard manufacturing facility commenced in 1990. Based on the banks of the River Humber, the Immingham Plasterboard Plant services the North of England, Scotland and the Irish market.
Built to the same modern technical specification as the larger Sittingbourne Plant, Immingham also has the capability to produce the complete range of Knauf Plasterboards, Thermal Laminates and foil backed Plasterboards.
Immingham was extended in 2006, massively increasing its capacity. The latest energy management technology was incorporated, the whole plant insulated and two huge heat exchangers added, saving 10% of the plant's energy requirements.
