EXPOL when total performance counts

EXPOL has a wide range of solutions made possible by the dynamic nature of Expanded Polystyrene and Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) foams. All EXPOL products are tested by a variety of institutions, including BRANZ and OPUS, to ensure quality and reliability. Our products are so efficient they can save up to 200 times their own resource in thermal energy savings.


EXPOL’s seven New Zealand-based manufacturing facilities and recycling plants situated in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Blenheim, Christchurch (Belfast, Rolleston) and Cromwell ensure that our customers get fast, reliable service at the lowest price possible. Our expanded polystyrene recycling plants are among the largest in New Zealand and allow us to manufacture highly sustainable polystyrene products.

EXPOL’s commitment to our environment.

At EXPOL we’ve made a commitment to the environment and take responsible manufacturing seriously.  Hence the introduction of our EXPOL Earth brand designed to incorporate all our environmental and sustainability initiatives.

We are focused on a true closed-loop recycling process – 75% of the products we make use recycled content, and we have plans and concepts in place to do even better.

We have a number of recycling initiatives in place which include the EXPOL Household Recycling Cube, Construction Site Recycling and Commercial Recycling.
