Lakehead Insulation


Lakehead Insulation, (Lakehead) was established shortly after the second world war primarily to service the Thunder Bay shipyards and fledgling pulp industry. Today, Lakehead has expanded into a full service insulation contracting specialist.

We are strategically located in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and have proudly served the north-western Ontario market for over 65 years. Lakehead‘s record of customer satisfaction and repeat business has enabled us to establish strong partnerships with our many long-term customers.

Lakehead Insulation extends a wide range of contracting services to the forestry, mining, power and institutional sectors. Since becoming a subsidiary of Fuller Austin, we are able to leverage off of the wealth of knowledge and experience of Fuller Austin to expand our core service offerings to include building cladding and scaffolding. This is in addition to our traditional suite of offerings which includes industrial insulation, maintenance and turnaround support, marine insulation, commercial/institutional mechanical insulation, fire stopping, refractory and asbestos abatement.

Safety is a key element of every project that Lakehead Insulation performs and we proudly lead the industry with a safety record which exceeds industry standards.

We are also proud to play a key role in energy conservation. This is important to our clients in assisting them in “holding the line” on rising energy costs. Lakehead Insulation‘s experienced staff and trained, qualified personnel assure quality services.

Lakehead Insulation has many contracting related systems and programs to provide assurance that our projects are completed safely and on budget as well as having the flexibility to conform to clients’ needs within the framework of government and other legislative requirements. Our processes, systems and policies include:

  • Health, Safety, and Environment
