A Legacy of Innovation

Our ownership was instrumental in the critical research and field testing to bring SIPs into the IBC in the 1980s. Investing in critical third-party testing and code report substantiation was a sound investment because our founding family knew how significantly SIPs buildings can positively impact the efficiency and health of the built environment.  With thousands of Premier SIPS structures standing strong and efficient today, we are proud to be experts in the continual innovation of Structural Insulated Panel framing Systems.

A Philosophy of Service

Manufacturing a high-performance, precision-engineered, panelized roof, wall, and floor framing systems is something we are proud of -- but we believe our job is more than just production. Our entire team works to serve our customers through education, pre-design expertise, and field jobsite training to ensure the SIPs framing portion is smooth for any project. Without our trademark high-end service, our exceptional and innovative products mean nothing.  We believe the way to truly be “Premier” is to do everything we can to best serve our customers.

A World of Unlimited Possibilities

While SIPs aren’t new, energy codes, labor shortages and a demand for higher quality structures are expanding the desire for SIPs Framing Systems more than ever before. What used to be reserved for the highest quality, most energy-efficient buildings, smart Contractors and Design Professionals have learned that these innovative panels solve many of our industry’s current challenges, and deliver truly superior end-use buildings. Builders are saving time and money, Architects are gaining design flexibility and environmental product benefits, and Developers or Building Owners are occupying healthier, stronger, structures with significantly reduced operating costs.  The future of the SIPs industry in the built environment is wide-open and Premier is honored to be at the front of the industry.
