BuildBlock is proud to be expanding product manufacturing to South Dakota. 

South Dakota ICF

BuildBlock ICFs will soon be manufactured at Benchmark Foam in Watertown, South Dakota. With the loss of Plymouth Foam as an EPS molder, BuildBlock is excited for the opportunity to partner with Benchmark Foam, a company with over 40 years of EPS experience and proven success. A presence in South Dakota will allow us to better serve our customers with quality products in a convenient location. Located just 100 miles north of Sioux Falls, this new manufacturing facility is perfectly poised to produce BuildBlock products for both central and northern states. 

“We’re very excited about working with Benchmark Foam,” said BuildBlock CEO Mike Garrett. “The South Dakota facility broadens our coverage in the middle and northern parts of the country and lowers shipping costs for customers in those regions.”

About ICFs

Insulating concrete forms (ICFs) are hollow foam blocks which are stacked into the shape of the exterior walls of a building, reinforced with steel rebar, and then filled with concrete. Insulated concrete forms combine one of the finest insulating materials, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), with one of the strongest structural building materials, steel reinforced concrete. The result is a wall system of unmatched comfort, energy efficiency, strength, and noise reduction.
