CIUR UK and PYC Insulation Ltd – New Commercial Partnership

We are pleased to announce that CIUR (UK) and PYC Insulation Ltd have entered into a new commercial partnership aimed at developing and distributing Warmcel Cellulose Insulation in the UK and Ireland.

Mr. Michal Urbanek, MD CIUR a.s. stated: “since CIUR a.s. acquired the Warmcel brand and manufacturing plant from Excel Industries Limited, we wanted to set up a strong team in order to continue to develop and support the sales of Warmcel cellulose insulation in the UK. In addition to our excellent manufacturing process and UK Technical and Commercial team, by partnering with PYC Insulation we can now offer a much broader package of support to Warmcel installers and work more effectively with architects, specifiers and developers.”

Meanwhile, Jasper Meade, MD PYC Insulation Ltd stated: ”After many years of being the largest Warmcel Installer in the UK, PYC has re-structured and expanded its business. This means that rather than focussing on installing Warmcel we are now providing technical and commercial development assistance for other Warmcel installers. This involves using our experience and long term relationships with architects, specifiers and developers to grow the market for Warmcel as well as support with machines and building systems with Warmcel. In order to achieve our goals we needed to find a cellulose manufacturer, with an excellent cellulose fibre product and commercial and technical team. In CIUR we have more than achieved this goal. The continuation of the Warmcel brand in the UK and the formation of our new partnership with CIUR is excellent news for UK construction sector.”

Warmcel and Improcel live on with a new owner & manufacturer

Following the closure of Excel Industries Limited the good news is that Warmcel Cellulose Insulation and also Industrial Cellulose fibre lives on in the UK!

CIUR (UK)’s parent company CIUR a.s. Prague has purchased the Excel Industries Limited manufacturing plant, along with the Warmcel and Improcel branding and rights to the Warmcel and Improcel certification.

Speaking from the CIUR (UK) office, Mr. Michal Urbanek (MD CIUR a.s.) and Mr. Mojmir Urbanek (Production Director CIUR a.s.) stated: “When Excel Industries went into Administration, as a long standing leading EU manufacturer of cellulose insulation, we felt that it was important that the Warmcel cellulose insulation brand should continue to be made available in the UK. The product will be manufactured as normal and sold via our UK office and fully supported commercially and technically by the CIUR (UK) team. All UK industrial fibre customers should also be aware that we are also supplying our broad range of our Subcel Industrial cellulose fibres directly from our UK office. This all means that all UK users of cellulose insulation and industrial cellulose fibres can continue to benefit from using high quality, carbon efficient fibres made from sustainable sources of recycled paper.

Meanwhile, David Craig, MD CIUR (UK) stated: “CIUR a.s. and CIUR (UK) are fully committed to the UK fibre market and will continue to ensure that high levels of product quality, support and service are met.

CIUR (UK) Ltd. visit parent factory

During September 2012 David Craig (Managing Director) and Kath Richards (Customer Services Manager) visited the CIUR a.s. factory in Brandys nad Labem, Czech Republic where all the products supplied by CIUR (UK) Ltd. are produced.

The purpose of the visit was to enhance the already excellent relationship between the two companies by carrying out a tour of the factory to see how the products are made and meet all the people involved in the production and the administration processes.


This was Kath’s first visit to Prague and afterwards she said “I'm very impressed to see how professional & organised it is at CIUR a.s. I was introduced to every member of staff within the Company & was inspired to see such a happy, friendly & supportive workforce. I returned to the UK feeling proud to be working for such a professional, caring & supportive Company”.

Since the visit in 2012, regular meetings take place in either the UK or Prague to discuss the progress & development of our Company, in addition to our daily communication to discuss day to day issues.
