BUILD BETTER: Peter Shepard, Business Development Director for Aquapanel at Knauf

Peter Shepard, Business Development Director for Aquapanel at Knauf commented on the new union: “We are pleased to now be a member of the Tile Association, and we are looking forward to seeing all of the great talent put on show at the award’s ceremony. Our Aquapanel, a high-performance tile backing board sees us having a close partnership with many in the tile industry, and we look forward to continuing to work together to build better.”

Together with the Tile Association, Knauf is eager to contribute to the advancement and recognition of outstanding achievements within the tiling industry.

Established in 1932, Knauf has evolved from a family business into a global force, operating in 90 countries with 40,000 employees. As a leading building products manufacturer, Knauf UK and Ireland started in 1988 with a state-of-the-art plasterboard factory in Sittingbourne, Kent, producing top-quality plasterboards and laminates.

Following success, the Immingham Plasterboard Plant was built in 1990, to the same modern technical specification and can produce the complete range of Knauf plasterboards, thermal laminates and foil-backed plasterboards.

In 1993, the Sittingbourne facility expanded with the UK Powder Plant, adding diverse products like Knauf Plasterboard Adhesive. In 2006, the Immingham plant expanded with energy-efficient technologies. The whole plant insulated, and two huge heat exchangers added, saving 10% of the plant’s energy requirements.
