IKO’s brands have been
global leaders in roofing, waterproofing and insulation products for over 100
years. IKO UK Group – comprising IKO PLC and IKO Polymeric - was established in
2000 and has grown rapidly, both organically and through the successful acquisition
and integration of well-known brands including Ruberoid, Permanite, Marley
Waterproofing, Hyload, and more recently, Pure Asphalt.
IKO continues to grow
in traditional roofing and waterproofing and a number of very different markets
including PIR insulation; damp proofing and tanking; single ply membranes; flashing;
roof shingles and liquid protection for roofs, floors and walls.
IKO has four manufacturing plants in the UK, and has achieved the ISO 9001 standard for quality for all of them. Three of IKO’s factories also have ISO 14001 for environmental management and BES 6001 for responsible sourcing of products. A fifth plant is being built this year.
IKO continues to invest
in new products, manufacturing facilities, customer services, and training for
staff and customers to ‘set the standard’ in every field. The company is a
leading voice on topical issues and is the Expert for Roofing for the Builders
Merchant Building Index (BMBI).
