About Fletcher Insulation
Fletcher Insulation is Australia’s leading insulation company supplying our favourite brands of insulation. These include Pink Batts® insulation, Sisalation® foil and Permastop® building blanket - to name but a few. Although Fletcher Insulation™ is a relatively new company, we have a strong pedigree dating back over half a century.
Our history stretches back to the 1930’s when the Australian Sisalkraft Company started manufacturing products used in packaging and as a wallwrap and building membrane. After WW2 they developed the concept of adding foil to Sisalkraft® kraft paper to provide insulation benefits and this is how Sisalation® foil was born.
Then in the 1950’s, CI were the first company in Australia to make glasswool insulation from a plant in Botany, before the world class Dandenong site was developed in the 60’s. This led to the development of batt insulation at a time when most competitors were still supplying granulated rockwool. ACI Insulation became a household name in the 70’s when they led the promotion of home insulation with the famous Pink® Panther advertising campaigns.
Insulco® began more recently in 1979 and quickly grew to become a major force in the insulation market. Sales of both FatBatts® insulation and Vapa-Chek® building blanket steadily increased Insulco’s market share through the 80’s and 90’s. Insulco’s commitment to customer service and flexibility in manufacturing were the key to its success.
Fletcher Building acquired the Insulco® business in 2003 and then Insulation Solutions (previously ACI Insulation) in 2005. These two businesses were then joined to create Fletcher Insulation™ – taking the best features that each company offered to create a new standard in insulation in Australia.
