The successful development of the UK business started in 1988 with the construction of our first plasterboard plant in Sittingbourne, Kent. A second plasterboard plant at Immingham, N.E Lincolnshire, and a plaster plant at Sittingbourne closely followed. To date, in excess of £100 million has been invested in the most advanced manufacturing technology making Knauf Drywall one of the largest suppliers of gypsum-based building materials in the UK.
Knauf is firmly committed to on-going technology developments and diversification, working closely with the industry to deliver quality, innovative, cost-effective products to our customers. Knauf systems have been used and installed around the world with proven success. In the UK, products have the quality assurance of the Company’s BS EN ISO 9001:2000 certification.
To ensure that this success continues into our second decade, we are not only working to continually improve the quality of current products and services, but constantly monitoring and evaluating trends for new materials, technologies and systems. In this way we can identify and develop each new opportunity to maintain our leading edge position.
