R-CONTROL® SIP Manufacturing Capacity Expanded

AFM Corporation Is Proud to Announce Expanded Availability for R-Control Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) in North America

LAKEVILLE, MN--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) - AFM Corporation is proud to announce the expanded availability of R-Control Structural Insulated Panels (R-Control SIPs) in North America. AFM welcomes two new manufacturing and marketing licensees to expand the number of AFM's R-Control licensees from six to eight. Chapman Building Systems of Kerrville, TX and Energy Systems, Inc of Knoxville, TN are now recognized as R-Control Licensees of AFM Corporation.

Chapman Building Systems and Energy Systems had a previous relationship with AFM as toll converters of R-Control Structural Insulated Panels for many years, but now join the expanded group of R-Control Structural Insulated Panel licensees as fully qualified manufacturing and marketing licensed facilities. With the addition of these facilities, R-Control Structural Insulated Panels and their accessory products will be available to a broader base of customers throughout the U.S. As a result of this expanded availability, AFM Corporation will also more effectively supply its national account customers needing R-Control Structural Insulated Panels anywhere in the U.S.

AFM Corporation requires each licensee to manufacture R-Control Structural Insulated Panels under uniform prescriptive requirements of quality assurance, product standards, and building code recognition. R-Control Structural Insulated Panels are used in residential SIP homes and commercial construction applications where structural capacity, superior insulation value, low air leakage, green building strategies, customer fabrication, and project time or cost controls are important.
