Saint-Gobain and TimberHP enter partnership to offer high-performance wood fiber insulation in North America

Saint-Gobain, through its building products subsidiary CertainTeed Inc., and TimberHP, a manufacturer of insulating wood composites, today announced that they have entered into a collaborative relationship, which will enable CertainTeed to distribute TimberHP’s wood fiber insulation products in North America, including as the exclusive distribution partner in Canada.

Executed in close collaboration with NOVA by Saint-Gobain, the company’s venture arm, this partnership will continue to drive Saint-Gobain’s vision to be the worldwide leader in light and sustainable construction and will improve its own sustainable offerings and readiness to respond to customer needs.

TimberHP, located in Maine, is a startup company that grew out of a partnership between two entrepreneurs—Matthew O’Malia, an award-winning architect with a reputation for developing high-performance, cost-competitive designs; and Dr. Joshua Henry, a materials chemist with years of experience elevating solutions to conserve energy and produce renewable energy. They utilize residual wood chips and hydroelectricity to manufacture nature based sustainable insulation solutions from wood fiber, which aligns with Saint-Gobain’s global sustainability goals. When fully launched, the offering will include loose fill, batt, and rigid board insulation products.
