Parkfield Insulation Services has moved from Delaware to a much larger Union County space at 14000 state Route 42 to allow for an anticipated expansion of its operations.

The company had operated at 1377 London Road in Delaware for 14 years.

"We had grown in Delaware to the point where we didn't have enough room both for our trucks and for employee parking," Parkfield owner Bill Hatfield said. "And to accommodate future growth, we needed more space for supplies and materials.

"We searched all over southern Delaware County and couldn't find quite the right fit until we heard about the property in Ostrander that suited our needs perfectly," he said.

The move increased the company's office space from 700 to 1,800 square feet and its storage space from 1,800 to 12,000 square feet.

"We love the new location," Hatfield said. "We're right on Route 42 with easy access to U.S. 23 and Route 33 which gets us to I-270 and anywhere we have a job in central Ohio."

When Hatfield launched his company in 1998, "all we had was a pretty good idea and not much else," he said. "In the first year, we did maybe $200,000 in revenue. In 2011, we did over $2 million in revenue. So, we've come a long way."

Since its inception, Parkfield has installed more than 20 million pounds of insulation in more than 4,500 new and existing homes, he said.

"We can save the owners of a 3,000-square-foot home about $50 a month on their utility bills and the owners of a 2,000-square-foot home about $30 a month," Hatfield said.

The company estimates it has saved customers more than $2 million in utility bills since 1998.

Hatfield said Parkfield is the area's only dealer of NuWood cellulose insulation, which is thicker than fiberglass insulation.

"One thing people don't realize about cellulose insulation is how much quieter your home will be after it has been installed," he said. "That's the first thing customers tell us, is how quiet their house is, insulated from external noises and even in noise from one side of the house to the other."

Hatfield said he's looking forward to a good relationship with the Union County Chamber of Commerce.

"I live in Union County, in Plain City, so I'm familiar with the area," he said. "I expect a positive experience with the chamber. So far, they've been very good folks to work with."
