Saint-Gobain announced last Friday that it has acquired the business assets of International Cellulose Corporation, a privately owned manufacturer of commercial specialty insulation products, including spray-on thermal and acoustical finishing systems.

In a Feb. 2 news release, Saint-Gobain said the acquisition of ICC’s assets will allow Saint-Gobain to “reinforce its leadership position in light and sustainable construction by offering fireproofing and insulation solutions that will enhance energy conservation and efficiency in commercial spaces.”

Manufactured with natural, plant-based fibers and high recycled content, Saint-Gobain said ICC products meet some of the world’s most rigorous sustainability standards, such as LEEDV.4 and GREENGUARD Gold certifications, aligning with Saint-Gobain’s focus on sustainability. 

Cellulose, the primary raw ingredient in ICC products, contains high levels of sequestered carbon, furthering Saint-Gobain’s commitment to net-zero carbon by 2050.

“With plant fiber-based spray insulation products that allow commercial spaces to be more energy efficient, safe and comfortable, International Cellulose Corporation is a perfect fit for Saint-Gobain North America,” said Mark Rayfield, president and CEO of Saint-Gobain North America and CertainTeed. “I look forward to welcoming the ICC team to the Saint-Gobain family and working together to meet our sustainability goals and our purpose: ‘Making the World a Better Home.’”

With approximately 50 employees at its manufacturing site in Houston, Saint-Gobain said the ICC acquisition will allow it to establish its Commercial Building and Infrastructure business as a “leader” in cementitious fireproofing and sprayed acoustic insulation. 

ICC’s product portfolio complements existing Saint-Gobain insulation solutions, such as GCP’s fireproofing products, acquired by Saint-Gobain in 2022, and CertainTeed’s interior insulation portfolio.

International Cellulose Corporation will join CertainTeed’s Commercial Building and Infrastructure business in the Americas Region. The acquisition includes the assets of Ecosorb International, a subsidiary of International Cellulose Corporation.
