  • How has the industry changed/evolved?
    The Industrial insulation industry has experienced extensive consolidation at all levels over the past several years. This consolidation has occurred on the part of the owners, manufacturers, contractors and distributors. It has changed the ways many of us do business and will continue to change our future business models.
  • What is your company’s biggest success thus far?
    The biggest thing that has contributed to Johns Manville’s success is our recognition that there is not one single industrial insulation material that will solve all insulation needs. The "silver bullet" doesn’t exist yet, so we realize that to be the true Master Manufacturer of industrial insulation in North America, we must offer multiple products to the industry.
  • What distinguishes your company from others in the industry?
    Johns Manville manufactures fiberglass, calcium silicate, thin blanket, perlite, and mineral wool. Since no one solution is best for every application, Johns Manville has a family of products to meet the needs of specific applications.
  • What is the biggest challenge in your industry?
    The biggest challenge in our industry is to continue to develop new products and to improve existing products in a mature industry.
  • What don’t most people realize about you or your company?
    Most people don’t realize that in 2002 the formula for Thermo-12® Gold (calcium silicate) was enhanced with the proprietary corrosion inhibition package referred to as the XOX Corrosion Inhibitor®. Just this year, Thermo-12 Gold evolved a step further to be the first water-resistant calcium silicate in North America. Now branded Thermo-1200™ it is a leading choice for defending against CUI. We’ll be doing a product demo of this new product at IEX.
