Corporation is a name associated with vehicle noise control since 1964. There
is considerable goodwill connected to Insul-Coustic as a result of its
leadership in the off-highway vehicle & equipment market in the 70’s and
80’s. During that time, I-C designed, tested, and manufactured noise control
products, which allowed the OEM to achieve compliance with new Federal
regulations covering operator exposure to noise (OSHA), and environmental noise
(EPA). In fact, many of the specifications in existence, today, for cab
headliners, engine compartment insulators and chassis liners at Caterpillar and
John Deere were developed by Insul-Coustic.
history begins in Long Island, New York in 1944, with Mr. John March and his
fledgling company, Richmond Asbestos Co., a contractor/distributor of
Owens-Corning Fiberglas® (OCF) which distributed products and did contracting
work within the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) markets. He
became OCF’ largest distributor/ contractor. In 1955, he began molding
fiberglass insulation for pipefittings and non-standard pipe sizes, and began
selling these products to other HVAC contractors. The molding business grew
significantly, when OCF gave him their molding presses for production of
high-density fiberglass boards used in the office furniture (e.g. tack board
for office partitions) market. Additional growth came when he purchased Birma
Products, a division of Bell Helicopter, which made quilted fiberglass
insulation used to insulate helicopter bulkhead. In 1964, when the off-highway
vehicle market began to develop for noise control insulation, he named the
company Insul-Coustic, and the growth of his business continued. Former employees of Insul-Coustic started most
of the major fiberglass molding businesses in existence today.
1982, Mr. March sold Insul-Coustic to the Celotex Corporation, Tampa, FL. In
1986, the assets of the business were purchased by Mr. Cunningham and renamed
PresGlas® Corporation. Within that first year, PresGlas gained Certified
Supplier status at Caterpillar, Fiat-Allis, Mack Truck, Chrysler, and others. PreGlas
was sold in 1994.
its early beginnings unto the present day, Insul-Coustic Corporation has been
dedicated to the restoration of the legacy of Mr. March and his commitment to
the off-highway vehicle & equipment market.
