Since our founding in 1985, we have seen continued growth and are now proud to be the largest insulation contractor in the Tri-State. Much of this growth over the past 25 years has stemmed from the opportunity to participate in high-value local projects like Duke Energy’s new power plant. At a time when most companies are cutting back, Duke is creating jobs and opportunities with a huge project right in our backyard. In February 2010, we learned that Duke chose us for nearly all the mechanical insulation work required for the new plant. This is our largest job to date.
Duke Energy recognizes the benefits of local contractors. By choosing a contractor like Gribbins Insulation, Duke is taking advantage of our knowledge and experience working in the area with our local highly-trained union members. We know the area, we know the workers, we know how to get the job done. During construction over the next two years, the Edwardsport plant alone will employ up to 200 insulators at any one time, and this will be in addition to our usual work.
