The American Chemistry Council Reports Nearly 400,000 U.S. Jobs Generated from Manufacture of Insulation

We know the benefits of using insulation - lower energy bills; added indoor comfort; increased building durability; reduced pollution. But have you ever wondered who is responsible for bringing those benefits to homes and buildings across the country? The answer is nearly 400,000 of your fellow Americans!

The impressive number comes via a recent report by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) entitled, The Contributions of Insulation to the U.S. Economy in 2016. Unpacking the 400,000 jobs reveals an economic engine that produces more than $20 billion in payrolls, $1.1 billion in state and local taxes, and $1.9 billion in federal tax revenues.

Insulation manufacturers directly employ more than 33,000 people in 42 states. The top five states for insulation manufacturing jobs are Ohio (#1), Texas (#2), Georgia (#3), California (#4), and Indiana (#5).  California ranks number one for total employment in the insulation industry with over 54,000 jobs.
