Mariano's Fresh Markets Utilizes ACH Foam Technologies' EPS Insulation in New "Food Deserts" Locations

Thanks in part to a $5 million Build Illinois bond, Chicago-area grocer Mariano's Fresh Markets is continuing their growth trend with new locations that address "food deserts." Delivering both high quality and cost-effectiveness, ACH Foam Technologies' Foam-Control Plus+ expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation is an important ingredient in that expansion.

ACH Foam Technologies' Foam Control + provides designers and builders with a versatile insulation product that stands the test of time.

Mariano's is known throughout northeastern Illinois for supplying local neighborhoods with fresh, high-quality foods from around the world at affordable prices. To do this, the company continually looks for ways to maximize its capital investment during the construction process.

One way Mariano's has achieved efficiency in both construction and long-term operations on recent projects is through the incorporation of ACH Foam Technologies' Foam-Control Plus+ 400 insulation.

Their newest Chicago store is a 70,000-square-foot building with rooftop parking. The split slab construction for the roof deck required an insulation material with a high R-value and high compressive strength. Naturally, they went with ACH Foam Technologies' Foam-Control Plus+ 400, an architectural grade insulation that costs between 10 and 30 percent less than comparable extruded polystyrene (XPS) solutions and comes with a 50-year R-value warranty, as compared to the 20-year warranty other EPS insulation manufacturers offer. Mariano's construction team also wanted thicker pieces of insulation, which are available from ACH Foam Technologies, but not typically in XPS products.
