I. BuildBlock Turnkey EPS Manufacturing

The quality and integrity of BuildBlock ICFs are second to none. The quality begins with the superior design features of the BuildBlock ICFs which are then finally executed by utilizing the highest quality machines and tools to produce our finished products. BuildBlock currently manufactures ICFs in twelve locations throughout North America. BuildBlock’s experience will be invaluable to your organization in purchasing machinery, sizing your facility, developing packaging for shipping BuildBlock products, and obtaining support and training for your machine operators.
BuildBlock works hand in hand with the best EPS machine builders in the world. BuildBlock’s partners stand at the cutting edge of developing leading technologies and building state-of-the-art machines specifically designed for the production of BuildBlock products. These state-of-the-art machines are designed to maximize output by reducing cycle times, limiting down-time, and achieving optimal energy efficiency. BuildBlock’s partners also have extensive experience in planning and installing turn-key EPS facilities.
In addition to fixed and mobile facilities, developing relationships with existing EPS molders in your territory to produce your BuildBlock ICFs can sometimes be a possibility. Having experienced partners at your side with established contacts worldwide will assure that your manufacturing facility meets your initial needs, accounts for future growth, and helps you achieve the highest return on your investment.
