Meet Our Team

Northern Insulation Contractors was founded in 1981 by John Costello. 

Set up initially as a specialist insulation firm, NIC quickly expanded into asbestos removal and reinstatement due to the high demand for a specialist company offering high quality services. We have  held a full 3 year asbestos licence since 1984.

John retired in 2007 and left the company in the safe hands of his children, Andy and Sarah, along with Dave Barnes who continue the ethos of high quality service from a company that cares.

Meet today’s Northern Insulation Contractors team below.
