Leading technical insulation and passive fire protection (PFP) specialist, AIS Technical, has overhauled its brand identity and changed name to Insulcon Technical to align with the business strategy of parent company, IPCOM Group
Acquired by IPCOM in 2019, AIS Technical has supplied the oil and gas industry with technical insulation to combat issues such as noise, corrosion and weather, as well as passive fire protection which withstands temperatures of up to 1,250 degrees centigrade.
Insulcon develops high-temperature insulation systems and includes Wearflex – a brand of flexible products including fabric expansion joints and bellows, which absorbs thermal movement within pipes and ducts up to and beyond 1300 degrees. AIS Technical’s products are complementary and the company has already been established as Insulcon’s UK manufacturing base for the Wearflex brand products. The rebrand marks a natural progression of this relationship. Insulcon Technical will remain an independent company with its own personnel, customers and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in North Tyneside.
Insulcon Technical, managing director, Chris Evans, said, “Our new name and brand identity marks a fresh new beginning for our business and provides a strong statement of our intent. Aligning with the Insulcon Group of companies was an easy decision as our product ranges complement each other and, together, we offer customers a powerful, holistic, thermal insulation and passive fire protection solution."
