Rockfon celebrates 10 years in North America

October 17, 2023

Since 1962, Rockfon has been a leading manufacturer of stone wool ceiling panels with more than 60 years of success in Europe. Through the decades, it continued bringing its products to European and Asian markets. As part of its strategic expansion, Rockfon was introduced to North America in 2013. With the acquisition of the Chicago Metallic Company, founded in 1893, Rockfon further strengthened its position in North America.

Headquartered in Chicago, Rockfon’s associates are located strategically across the continent to provide localized support for commercial building projects’ ceiling needs. Many project success stories are featured in our case study gallery:

“We are very proud of our team’s success in bringing the stone wool ceiling products to the U.S. and Canada,” said Kirill Fedorovskiy, president of Rockfon North America. “We’ve come a long way from introducing stone wool to North America in 2013. Thousands of architects, designers and contractors have now experienced the beauty, exceptional acoustic performance, resilience and durability of our stone wool products backed with an industry-leading warranty. Our stone wool solutions fully complement our robust, creative capabilities with metal ceiling products.”

Responding to increased demand, Rockfon opened its U.S. manufacturing facility for stone wool acoustic ceiling products in 2017. “Producing locally makes it easier and faster to supply our customers and distributors with Rockfon's high quality products,” explained Fedorovskiy. 

These innovative products have earned recognition and awards from numerous industry associations and publications. Most recently, Rockfon® Color-all™ acoustic stone wool ceiling panels have been honored as an Editor’s Pick for The Architect’s Newspaper Best of Products Awards and were recognized among Architectural Record’s Best Ceilings & Walls. Following years of success in Europe, Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic ceiling systems became available to select regions of North America in 2023. This stone wool monolithic ceiling solution creates a smooth, seamless, uninterrupted surface with best-level sound-absorption and are supported with qualified, certified installers.
