IKO’s brands have been global leaders in roofing, waterproofing and insulation products for over 100 years. IKO UK Group – including IKO PLC and IKO Polymeric - was established in 2000 and has grown rapidly, both organically and through the acquisition and integration of well-known brands including Ruberoid, Permanite, Marley Waterproofing, Hyload, and Pure Asphalt.

IKO continues to grow in traditional roofing and waterproofing, as well as a number of very different markets including PIR insulation; damp proofing/tanking; flashing; roof shingles; liquid protection for roofs, floors and walls, and mastic asphalt solutions for highways and civil engineering projects.

IKO has achieved the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards (for quality and environmental management) and BES 6001 (for responsible sourcing of products) for all three of its UK factories. A fourth plant, at the Alconbury Weald development, is being built this year.

IKO continues to invest in new products, manufacturing facilities, customer services, and staff and customer training to ‘set the standard’ in every field. The company is a leading voice on topical issues and is the Expert for Roofing for the Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI).
