They say timing is everything!

Applegate Insulation unveils it's new high-tech cotton insulation line in Eastanollee, Georgia, and Dave Renbarger takes over the reigns of National Distributor Sales Rep for Cotton Armor insulation.

Why produce a new state-of-the-art thermal cotton insulation when the housing market is upside down?

  • To rectify many of the shortcomings of typical batt insulation

  • To satisfy the needs for an easy to install professional grade insulation

  • To utilize more of America's otherwise wasted resources

  • To meet the needs for an environmentally responsible insulation product

  • To produce the easiest to install insulation on the market


Some highlights of the new high-tech line:

  • State of the art equipment and process controls

  • Unique dual fire retardant application process

  • High capacity production, helping ensure timely delivery


"I am very proud of the effort put in by Marvin Johnson, our Product Development Manager. Having seen more insulation plants than I can remember, this facility takes the entire natural fiber insulation manufacturing process to the next level. The direction to the team was "Build the best so we can offer the best!" and these guys did it. This is a perfect example of our long-term commitment to the growth of our company and the dynamic future of the insulation industry," says Terry Applegate, President & CEO.


Our Company Position: Applegate Insulation has been in business since 1978 and we have seen it all—significant changes in federal and state regulations, hundreds of plant closures, competitors come and go, and at least 3 recessions. Instead of closing plants during this latest downturn like some of our competitors have done, we will continue to take the contrarian view by:


  • Constantly upgrading our facilities, equipment, and processes

  • Developing new products

  • Hiring the best personnel


Why do we take this view? Because we were confident in 1978 and are only more so now. Natural fiber insulation is here to stay and so is Applegate.
