Kingspan Group’s status as an industry-leading manufacturer has been confirmed once again, as it has been named a Business Superbrand for the sixth year in succession.
2,500 UK business professionals were surveyed, along with a voluntary Business Superbrands Council, comprised of leading business-to-business marketing experts, to identify the top brands.
The extremely competitive programme is run annually by the Centre for Brand Analysis (TCBA) in partnership with Research Now SSI.
This year saw more than 1,500 brands from 62 categories judged against the three core factors inherent in a Superbrand: quality, reliability and distinction.
Stephen Cheliotis, CEO of TCBA and Chairman of Superbrands, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to celebrate some of the UK’s strongest brands.
“Competition in the B2B space has become fiercer than ever before, so retaining Superbrand status is a notable achievement. Each and every Superbrand should be proud of the efforts they have put in over the past 12 months that have led to this accolade.”
Kingspan Group is globally recognised as an innovator and leader in the development of advanced technologies for energy efficient buildings.
The company provides a comprehensive product portfolio over its five operational divisions: Insulated Panels, Insulation, Environmental, Access Floors, and the recently formed Light & Air division.
Kingspan Group also constantly strives to minimise its own environmental impact, with expectations to achieve Net Zero Energy across all manufacturing sites inside two years.
Group Chief Executive, Gene Murtagh, commented: “Our retained status as a Superbrand is testament to the hard work and dedication of staff right across the Kingspan Group.
“It is this commitment that sustains our drive for constant improvement in all area of our business, whether it be advancing product performance, delivering expert technical support or working to enhance the local communities around our sites.
“Today, the name Kingspan is synonymous with a forward thinking, holistic approach to construction — continually redefining the possibilities for our built environment.”
