Aloys (Luis) Prünte, Senior Technical Segment Manager Technical Solutions Europe, has over 20 years’ experience in the industry, of which over 11 are with Knauf Insulation. He is a reliable member of the team and is credited for rebuilding the Knauf Insulation Technical Solutions division practically from scratch.  The pandemic situation has had little impact on Luis’ daily routine as he has been working remotely from home since he joined us.

“We in the insulation business are the good guys, we save the world every day!” says Luis, a pattern he sees continuing into a bright future for insulation for at least the next 25-40 years

Luis loves the mountains and activities such as hiking and skiing, and is a fan of handball, football and winter sports, but above all likes to spend time with his wife and sons.

How did your story at Knauf Insulation begin?

When looking for a new challenge in 2010 KI offered the most interesting challenge:
becoming part of a small enthusiastic team with the task to (re)build the Technical Insulation division on a European level practically from the ground. This was the challenge I couldn't refuse.

What do you love the most about the insulation?

Hey! We are the good guys, we save the world every day!

How do you see the future of insulation business?

Bright and glorious - at least for the next 25 to 40 years; what comes after that is a question of technologies in the areas of buildings and energy supply that are not yet fully developed...

What is your favourite sport?

Actively I love whatever happens on the mountains: hiking and skiing! I follow football, winter sports and my favourite is handball.

What did a Covid19 lockdown bring for you?

I spent more time on PS4 with my boys, spent more time watching Netflix and in the end(?) I discovered annoying 5 more kilograms on my scale.

Who is your hero?

My wife, my boys – and of course my mother!

What would you do if never started a career in insulation?

If I never started working in insulation business I would nevertheless do technical product management in whatever other field.
