KNAUF TO EXPAND SHELBYVILLE, INDIANA INSULATION PLANT

Mission Viejo, CA - Knauf Insulation has announced that they have begun a new expansion project at their Shelbyville, Indiana plan to help meet the market demand for insulation products.

The new project will almost double Knauf's loose-fill capacity by mid 2007, and help address the growing demand for blown-in products including Jetstream blowing insulation.

Knauf anticipates continued growth ahead for all loose-fill insulation applications, driven by stronger energy codes, the growth in new construction sidewall cavity applications and contractor preference. And with as many as 60 million existing homes under-insulated by today's standards, they also anticipate significant opportunities with the reinsulation market.

In addition to the new loose-fill insulation capacity at Shelbyville, Knauf states that they are also on-schedule with the 400,000 square foot Shelbyville plant expansion dedicated to increasing commercial/industrial and light density production capacity. Begun in late 2004 adn scheduled for the first quarter 2008 start-up, this $177 million expansion will give Knauf the most advanced product facility in the industry for commercial/industrial products, and will increase light density capacity to help meet the growing demand.

The insulation industry world-wide continues to face capacity constraints, and Knauf is investing in an aggressive growth plan to meet global market needs.
