Vantem Composite Technologies Acquires Manufacturer of SIPs

Vantem Composite Technologies, LLC, a privately held composite building materials company, has announced acquisition of EH Systems, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs).

EH Systems had been producing SIPs for a wide range of uses including residential, multi-family and light commercial construction.

In addition to being a leading provider of SIPs, EH Systems was known for its role in providing wall and roof SIPs for the popular program “Extreme Makeover Home Edition” which aired on ABC on April 4, 2010.

SIP technology in homebuilding simplifies the construction process and makes it more controllable, efficient and reduces cycle time.

The company will now be operating under the name Vantem Panels and will be a member of the Vantem Composite Technologies family of brands.

“This was an important acquisition for Vantem Composite Technologies and will provide significant bandwidth and capability to produce and distribute durable, energy efficient SIPs for the residential and commercial building industry,” said John T. Preston, CEO, in a statement.

“The quality assets and select staff from EH Systems will enable Vantem to ramp SIP production immediately,” said Preston.

As part of the acquisition process, Vantem, along with a 103,000 square feet high-tech production facility, also acquired EH System’s distribution and storage facilities. The facility is located in New Braunfels, TX along the I-35 San Antonio-Austin corridor.

Vantem Composite Technologies, LLC is a privately held transformative building materials company located in Orlando, Fla. Vantem also supplies innovative composite technologies to builders and other industries worldwide.
