Local 17's proud history dates back to the late 1800s, and has since produced a countless number of trained professionals who are the best in the business.

In most industrial environments, temperature control is vital to the productivity of the plant. In order to achieve consistent temperature control, insulation must match the specification and design of the equipment. Additionally, the insulation must be properly installed and maintained by trained professionals. Poorly installed insulation allows thermal energy to escape, which jeopardizes production and wastes energy. Because the majority of equipment in today's state-of-the-art industrial plant requires mechanical insulation, it is vital that a company work with experts who understand the effect insulation has on a business' productivity, efficiency and safety.
