The plant will operate as Applegate Canada ULC and marks the first time the Webberville, Mich.,-based manufacturer of eco-friendly insulation products will have production capabilities inside of Canada.
“We’ve had customers in Canada for decades,” says Applegate CEO, Terry Applegate. “Now we can serve a greater market more efficiently and with lower freight.” Applegate has customers in more than 20 countries and attributes its success to the exceptional performance of its products and support.
The manufacturer says its products are typically lower in dust, cleaner and plug less frequently than its competitors’ products. This helps the insulation contractor work more efficiently and with fewer headaches. “When you’re in an attic that could be 120 degrees or hotter, you don’t want to stop to clear plugs or wait for dust to clear,” says Richard Applegate, Applegate Insulation national sales manager.
Applegate is currently filling several positions in operations and customer service at the new facility and encourages interested parties to call 1-844-372-8674 for additional information.
