On April 1, 1985, Gribbins Insulation opened its doors for business in a green building near downtown Evansville, Indiana. The entire operation consisted of Jim Gribbins as estimator, Leslee Gribbins as receptionist, and three insulators in the field.
Now at our third building in Evansville, we have seen tremendous growth over the past 25 years. Among our five locations in Indiana and Kentucky, we employ over 30 office staff and average about 150 insulators in the field. Over the past 10 years, we have completed projects in Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia, Florida, and even the Bahamas. Our participation in industry associations has introduced us to a broad network of industry support, and we are proud to be the largest insulation contractor in the Tri-State area.

- Abengoa Ethanol Facility – Mt. Vernon, IN
