Mississauga, Ontario - Canadian spray foam manufacturer Icynene Inc. has opened its first European offices, Icynene Europe sprl, in the Belgian capital, Brussels.
Icynene said in its 16 Jan announcement that it is positioned for sustained long-term growth across Europe as it formally opens this unit.
Located in the heart of the Brussels campus of L'Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), the new office opened 7 Jan after negotiations with the Brussels Science Incubator (BLSI).
"Icynene is excited to formally establish roots in Belgium which will help increase our presence and operational support in our existing European markets. Opening these offices reinforces our commitment to Europe and will help strengthen our regional brand awareness," said Bertrand Lauret, managing director of Abington Gate Europe, Icynene contact for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
"Europe offers Icynene an excellent opportunity for continued growth and development. Over the past 18 months, Icynene has experienced a significant growth in Europe which we expect to continue at the same pace as we look to new markets in the region. Thermal regulations have become more stringent and are now focused on air tightness and healthy insulation products. Icynene nicely fits this new environment and brings alternative solutions to traditional insulation." added Lauret.
The offices will initially have two staff with an expansion anticipated during the year. Icynene's new offices are at Clos Chapelle aux Champs, 30 bte 3030, 1200 Bruxelles, Belgium.
Canada's Icynene, set up in 1986, helps to build energy-efficient residential and commercial structures in over 31 countries worldwide with a portfolio of industry-leading light-density open-cell and medium density closed-cell SPF solutions. These are both insulation and air barrier materials for improved indoor air quality and reduced energy costs.
