For our last blog of the 3-part series, we are going to talk about the products of PFB Corporation. So how does one company go from supplying molecules all the way up to mansions? With a vertically integrated supply chain, beginning with EPS resin and ending with insulated building products and whole-home solutions, PFB Corporation maintains quality control over the materials from the ground up. Broken out into different divisions, we provide a wide range of products for varying market places and stages of construction, always with the mission to provide Quality, Service and Expertise.
With locations across North America, PFB is dedicated to the sustainable development of products that enhance the comfort, energy-efficiency, and beauty of the residential and commercial buildings that utilize the brands.
Plasti-Fab® – The EPS Product Solution
Plasti-Fab provides expanded polystyrene (EPS) product solutions for constructing energy efficient buildings, floatation for marine construction, lightweight fill and compressible fill for Geotechnical construction projects, EPS packaging solutions, roofing, and component solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers. The expanded polystyrene product solutions range from rigid foam insulation, to geofoam solutions for below grade applications and road work, specialty molded products and packaging solutions.

Advantage ICF System®
The Advantage ICF System® is a patented insulating concrete forming system consisting of two layers of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation connected with web connectors molded into the EPS insulation. The top and bottom edges of Advantage ICF System blocks have pre-formed interlocking mechanisms which ensure web connectors align vertically for attachment of surface finish materials.
When the installed Advantage ICF System blocks are filled with concrete, an insulated, monolithic concrete wall of uniform thickness is formed. The result is a superior, energy efficient wall that will provide long-term energy cost savings while adding resale value to the building.

Insulspan® – Structural Insulated Panel System
Insulspan leads the industry in the development and manufacture of structural insulated panels (SIPs). The Insulspan SIP System consists of a solid, one-piece precut SIP, that is ready to install as a wall, roof or floor component for residential and commercial construction. The use of SIPs provides increased energy efficiency, faster construction, and a healthier home due to reduced air infiltration with the thermal envelope. Insulspan provides an industry-leading RTA (Ready-to-Assemble) SIP package along with other product lines such as nail base panels, pre-cut, or blank panels.

Riverbend® – Timber Framing
At the pinnacle of PFB’s vertically-integrated marketing and manufacturing model is one of North America’s leading brands in the timber framing industry – Riverbend Timber Framing.
Homeowners and guests marvel at the elegance and strength of the beautifully-crafted solid wood posts and beams that make up the “bones” of the home. The timbers are custom-crafted to exacting standards and connected by the kind of pegged mortise and tenon joinery that has been used for centuries. The precision craftsmanship ensures fast, trouble-free assembly.
In addition to the beauty of the timber-framed interiors, owners of Riverbend homes enjoy the benefits of PFB’s state-of-the-art, energy-efficient enclosure systems. Riverbend’s traditional timber frame structures are integrated with Insulspan® SIPS and the PFB Advantage ICF System®. To learn more about Riverbend Timber Framing visit http://www.riverbendtf.com
