The therm-All Advantage

Bob Smigel founded Therm-All, Inc. in Cleveland, OH in 1981. Smigel, together with Vice President Denny Kaczmarek, opened Therm-All’s doors in 1981.

Therm-All struggled to survive during its first year in the recession of the early 1980s; however, in 1982 the company received its first major order of insulation and production increased. In the years to follow, business expanded and Therm-All acquired plants in Wisconsin, and an acquisition in 1994 of DeVries and Associates in Pennsylvania. In 1997, Therm-All purchased Owens Corning Fabricating Solutions and with this acquisition gained its current locations in Georgia, Texas and California. Therm-All later purchased Williams Insulation in 1997 and J.T. Johnson in 2008, subsequently expanding to Arizona and Washington.

Therm-All is proud to have spearheaded the need for industry standards, such as third-party testing of after laminated R-values. In fact, it was Bob Smigel who pushed for certification to guarantee to builders that the faced insulation product they receive from any company is 100% of the advertised R-value. Today, Therm-All customers can count on products designed to meet all the current standards and certifications, including NAIMA 202-96, NIA Certified Faced Insulation, Home Innovation Research Labs Verification, UL 25-50, and several environmental standards, such as LEED and GREENGUARD.
