Minnesota Spray-Foam Insulation was started in the spring of 2001 by the current owner, Jay Engelmeyer; with one truck and one part-time employee. The company offered Closed Cell Spray-Foam, Open Cell Spray-Foam, and Blown-in Attic Insulation. At that time, the company was operating out of a small building in St. Rosa, MN.
Along with the growing demand for a more energy efficient insulation product, Minnesota Spray-Foam Insulation added a second ‘spray-rig’ and 3 employees to help with new construction projects and attic insulation.
Business expanding to the Brainerd Lakes area and north, brought the need for a third ‘spray-rig’ to insulate lake homes, cabins and businesses.
In early summer, Minnesota Spray-Foam Insulation moved their main office to its present location along I-94 in Albany, MN. In September, a fourth ‘spray-rig’ was added for applying roofing foams over large, flat commercial roofs.
By late fall, a second location was needed, and a new shop was then opened in east Brainerd. With the addition of another location came the need for 4 more employees, and a branch manager.
The company of Minnesota Spray-Foam Insulation invested in equipment to apply thermal barriers such as sprayed cellulose and intumescent coatings over foam insulation. Thermal barriers are required where spray-foam is to be left exposed.
Increasing demand for spray applied roofing foams and acrylic coatings on flat roofs also helped the growth of the company, and a full-time bookkeeper was hired for the main office in Albany, MN.
Ever expanding their service area, Minnesota Spray-Foam Insulation had the need for another person for sales and estimating. A new Sales Associate was hired to bring in new ideas and serve the entire western portion of Minnesota.
Another ‘spray-rig’ was added to the fleet of trucks, and a weatherization crew was added. Removal of old attic insulation that had been damaged by fire or water, was an added service using a attic insulation vacuum. New Blown-In Insulation can be installed, increasing the R-value, and saving both energy and money.
To better serve customers in the Alexandria, Morris, Fergus Falls and Moorhead areas, a new shop was opened in Alexandria, MN, near the airport. Having a shop in Alexandria allowed for better service and extending into North Dakota and South Dakota.
Continued growth in the Brainerd Lakes region prompted the move from Brainerd to a new building in Baxter on Cypress Drive. This branch continues to service the area east from Brainerd/Baxter into western Wisconsin.
