IN BUSINESS FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS


Our mission
"Improve the energy efficiency and comfort of human housing within an environmental sensitivity by transforming and recycling newspaper into high-quality cellulose insulation to be applied in houses and buildings."

Igloo Cellulose Inc. was founded in 1978 by late Russell Fiset. Being also pioneers in the field back then, we relied on research and development as well as on the optimization and refinement of the production processes in order to produce a high-end product that is efficient, safe and in line with our environmental imperatives.

In March 2020, ISO-GREEN (France) along with its partners Harnam Kakkar, FCPA, FCMA and Daniel Béland B. Sc. A., MBA acquired 100% shares of Igloo Cellulose Inc. from Fiset family.

A STATE-OF-THE-ART
PRODUCT AND PRODUCTION


It was an immediate and ever-growing success. To meet the demand, our production facility gradually increased from a 16,000 to a 48,000 square feet area. Our modern facilities, equipped with many automated systems to ensure stability and quality of the product, now have the ability to produce millions of cellulose bags annually.

 

AN INNOVATIVE ENTERPRISE


We opened our own research center in 2007 in order to continuously improve the quality of our product and develop new application techniques. Our product has therefore surpassed the highest international standards, as much in the field of manufacturing as in safety standards. Thereby, we are proud to have obtained the GREENGUARD Gold certification as well as ISO 9001certification.

Always doing what's best for you
We will never stop promoting the use of reliable technologies and processes in the efficient application of cellulose, in order to ensure maximum thermal insulation of building envelopes exposed to extreme weather conditions.
We are proud to have become one of North America's leaders in cellulose manufacture.
