Fletcher Insulation traces its history back to the 1930’s, when the Australian Sisalkraft company began manufacturing packaging, wall wraps and building membrane products. Foil was added to Sisalkraft paper in the 1940’s 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. The ACI advertising campaign of the 1970’s, featuring the Pink® Panther, made Pink Batts® a household name. Insulco was established in 1979 and gained market share throughout the 80’s and 90’s 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.
