Our History

Fletcher Insulation traces its history back to the 1930s, when the Australian Sisalkraft company began manufacturing packaging, wall wraps and building membrane products. Foil was added to Sisalkraft paper in the 1940s to create the insulation product we know as ‘Sisalation®‘.
Shortly afterwards, in the 1950s, ACI Australia began to manufacture glasswool insulation and developed insulation batts, forging ahead of competitors still supplying old-fashioned granulated rockwool. The ACI advertising campaign of the 1970s, featuring the Pink® Panther, made Pink Batts® a household name.

Insulco was established in 1979 and gained market share throughout the 80s and 90s with its Fat Batts® and Vapa-Chek® products.

These brands and businesses were united early in the new century when Fletcher Building of New Zealand acquired Insulco in 2003 and Insulation Solutions (formerly ACI Insulation) in 2005. Fletcher Insulation was born, bringing together successful brands and merging flourishing, customer-oriented companies.
