STEICO may be a relatively new name to many however its products have been sold in the UK for over 25 years originally direct from its mills or via a small number of UK Agency customers.
In 2006 the first STEICO owned UK office was set up in Dartford, Kent predominantly to market the Munich based group's new I Joist products. Being a very difficult and technically demanding market to enter coupled with a rapidly deteriorating economy and a 50% downturn in new home building the first few years proved difficult. Although today the housing starts still remain at stubbornly low levels STEICO has managed to establish itself as one of the front running I Joist suppliers in the UK and the largest producer in Europe.
The corner stone of the STEICO success story in Europe has been based on its innovative and market leading range of insulation products manufactured from wood and hemp fibre.
