Kingspan Group was founded in Kingscourt, Co. Cavan in 1965, and has grown to 166 manufacturing facilities, with over 15,500 employees across 70 countries, operating in 5 different streams. Since the beginning, Kingspan has been committed to innovation to make building better, challenging the building industry traditions through innovating in advanced materials and digital technologies to achieve a net zero emissions future.
Global challenges such as climate change, circularity, well-being and digitalisation transform how we all design, build, operate and dispose. That’s why Kingspan has created IKON; their 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 to a more sustainable and healthy future while delivering enhanced value, convenience and efficiencies for Kingspan customers.
Join this very special Innovation Practice Group session on June 3rd, where we will hear from senior leaders across different functions within Kingspan. We’ll learn about the various aspects of their innovation journeys and practices, witness the integration of innovation, digital and sustainability across the business, and hear more about IKON and the strategic value of this new hub for them.
