SIG Insulation celebrates diamond anniversary in Steel City

The last 60 years have seen some monumental changes come to pass in the construction industry, but 2017 also marks 60 years of continuous service from SIG Insulation, the UK’s market leading specialist distributor of insulation.

Founded in 1957 by Ernest Adsetts as Sheffield Insulation, the company operated from a single site and a converted ice-cream van. Over the years SIG expanded into a wider group, becoming a leading distributor of specialist building products throughout Europe and provides everything from flooring to roofing products. However insulation remains at the heart of its offering, and the company now has more than 30 specialist insulation branches from Inverness to Plymouth.


Speaking on the diamond anniversary, David Hope – Sales & Marketing Director at SIG Distribution said: “It’s a great honour to celebrate 60 years of trading for SIG Insulation. A number of elements have contributed to our longevity, including our loyal customers and the hard work of our staff over the decades.


“As one of the largest employers in the Yorkshire region, and with many more staff throughout the UK, we’re proud to have provided a rewarding place for so many people to work for so many years. Some employees have served the company for more than 40 years so far, and I’d like to thank each of them personally.


“We also believe that it’s the duty of large companies to give back to their communities, and SIG Insulation is no different, supporting charities and initiatives including The Children’s Hospital Charity Sheffield, Macmillan and Race for Life. This is something that we’ll continue to do as the company expands further, and SIG look forward to the next 60 years.”
