“Aspen Aerogels has worked hard to develop and integrate high performance aerogel insulation solutions into a broad range of applications,” said Don Young, CEO of Aspen. “This investment represents both an acknowledgment of that success and a confidence in our vast potential to provide unique products that substantially reduce energy and system costs for our industrial, commercial, military and retail customers.”

The investment, one of the largest ever in the nanotechnology field, will enable Aspen to construct its second high technology aerogel manufacturing facility and will increase its production capacity fivefold. Aspen Aerogels’ leadership position has been recognized in several recent articles in trade journals, newspapers, and magazines and as well as part of Forbes’ Top Nanotechnology Products of 2004 and Fortune’s 25 Breakout Companies of 2005.
