President / CEO (Tony Key) started in the Insulation business straight out of High School in 1983. He served his 4 year apprenticeship with the International Association of Heat & Frost Insulators & Asbestos Workers Local Union #92. Due to his sincere love for the people and his desire to develop better craftsmen in the insulation trade, Mr. Key took over as the Joint Apprenticeship Training Instructor for Local #92, where he continually served in that position for 7 years. Mr. Key also wrote a training manual for insulators that is still widely used throughout the trade until this day.
In 1990 Mr. Key started traveling around the country working on various Nuclear Plant Outages where he was able to acquire insulation abilities that were not offered to him from his previous insulation employers.
In 1994 Mr. Key returned from traveling the country to his home territory and began working as an Insulation Foreman for I.C.M.S, Inc. and Bechtel at the Savannah River Site. He worked there until 1997 when he was finally able to achieve his life-long dream of starting his own Insulation Contracting Business.
1997: Insulation Systems of Augusta, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Wade Anthony (“Tony”) Key and served the Southeastern South Carolina & Georgia area. The company provided installations of all types of Heavy Commercial & Industrial Insulation Projects. Over the next twenty one years the company developed lasting relationships with various Mechanical Contractors and Industrial Plants and has grown and developed into the full service industrial & commercial insulation company that it is today.
During those twenty plus years Insulation Systems of Augusta, Inc. has always put the customer’s needs first and has strived to only offer the most cost efficient and highest quality product available in the market today, that we are proud to put our name on it.
