Superglass CEO takes helm of the UK’s representative insulation body

Published:  14 July, 2016

Superglass chief executive Ken Munro has been appointed chairman of the mineral wool insulation manufacturers’ representative body, MIMA, taking over from David Travill, managing director at Isover Saint Gobain.

Mr Munro said: “I would like to thank Mr Travill for his leadership and contribution, and I am pleased to be assuming the chair at such a critically important time for energy efficiency policy. Investment in the fabric of our homes and in their energy efficiency is good for the economy, increases productivity and attracts investment.

“In Scotland, our government has already committed to making the energy efficiency of our homes an infrastructure priority and is supported by the influential Energy & Climate Change Committee, led by SNP Chair, Angus MacNeil. This is an encouraging position but we would like to see this realised across the United Kingdom.”
