Anderson Insulation was founded by Eric R. Anderson after returning home from World War II. After the war, insulation was being slowly introduced into the housing market, and Eric saw the great need for the use of insulation to offset the cost of electric heat. He started off with two trucks, a loading dock and a 2,000 square foot warehouse on Temple Street in Abington.
Today, the second generation of Andersons run Anderson Insulation and have grown the business into a multi-location company. They moved the company into a 40,000-square-foot facility on Brockton Avenue in Abington, and have opened a satellite warehouse in Saco, Maine. With a fleet of 30 trucks, Anderson Insulation can be at more than 60 building/remodeling projects on any given day. Anderson is the insulation contractor of choice for the Emmy award-winning show “This Old House” and is the only RESNET Energy Smart Contractor in Massachusetts.
Eric Anderson and Jamie Anderson, now third generation Andersons, spent many summers between the time they were kids to the time they went off to college, helping their fathers at Anderson Insulation. From sweeping the warehouse floors to hanging insulation, those invaluable summer jobs have now given the cousins a depth of knowledge that will allow them to take the reins of the family business.
Anderson Insulation is a proud family business that creates jobs, invests in the communities and gives back to society through the Anderson Foundation.
