Who Are We

 

After working in the thermal insulation industry for many years Colin Fell together with Denise Fell founded Preform Insulation in October 1993.

Denise’s father Roy Cuffley had his own company and when it ceased trading Preform Insulations took over contracts from them.

In the beginning most of the work was in the King’s Lynn area.

Colin worked for Roy’s company, working offshore and then together with Denise started to make inroads into Norfolk, finding work at Chemical plants, power stations and food factories.

We now have many clients not only in Norfolk but the whole of East Anglia and even further afield We have even worked as far as the Falkland Islands.

We are one of the largest thermal insulation companies in East Anglia region working in many fields of the industrial and commercial sector carrying out insulation and cladding from a wide range of products.

At present we have our office in Norwich.

Our workforce have a mixture of skills and all have CSCS cards and NVQ’s in thermal insulation.
