Wider 'span

Strong growth in its key insulated panels market has helped Irish building materials group Kingspan increase profits 33 per cent.

The company made £56.7 million pre-tax in the first half of 2006, up from last year's £42.4 million.

Insulated panels make up 37 per cent of Kingspan's turnover, which was up 16 per cent from £394.4 million to £459.5 million.
