Mission & History

Nelson Insulation Company is dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service and efficiently executing quality work on-time, on-budget and in a way that’s safe and environmentally responsible. We subscribe to and follow the latest industry standards in everything we do from project estimating and management to fulfillment and safety.

Nelson Insulation was founded in 1958 by Alvin B. Nelson to fill a need in the construction industry for a multi-faceted insulation company.  We have had deep roots in Illinois’ Local #17 Heat and Frost Insulators since we opened our doors. Now, over fifty years later, we are the leading family-owned mechanical insulator in the Midwest with a commitment to deliver matchless customer service and innovation to both clients and the industry as a whole.

With support from a talented and highly qualified staff, Nelson excels in all aspects of mechanical insulation for a variety of commercial, industrial and institutional applications. Nelson Insulation is well known in the industry thanks to our reputation for quality and attention to detail.

We look forward to working with your company.
