InsulWall: Grounds Control to M. Block & Sons

Posted on: March 10th, 2014 by Beth Brown No Comments


 M. Block & Sons is a leading distributor of consumer products to retailers across the country. Vendor partners include Green Mountain Roasters and their Keurig single-serve coffee division, Proctor & Gamble, Kraft, and Tristar Products. In 2013 M. Block extensively renovated its Chicago location.  At the same time-  a clean, temperature-controlled environment was needed to contain its new Keurig packaging equipment. 

 After evaluating hard wall, dry wall, and lumber – it was determined that these options were both costly and did not address M. Block’s future expansion needs.  InsulWall was selected for its thermal properties, modularity, and flexibility. 

 “We deal exclusively with coffee production at our Chicago location.  InsulWall was the right choice for our packaging equipment to create a clean room with temperature, humidity, and even noise control,” said Don Ward, Corporate Facilities Manager.

 InsulWall was hung from the ceiling joists, worked around ventilation systems, and easily framed a series of roll-up doors.  Within two weeks this large clean room was operational with little business interruption to the facility.

M. Block expects to expand its coffee packaging equipment in 2014.  To facilitate this expansion, Don and his team will simply purchase additional InsulWall panels avoiding costly construction,  business interruption, and dust in this clean environment.

 Re-think. Re-purpose. Re-configure with InsulWall.
