Thermal Insulation Contractors Association

Started in 1957, TICA is a trade association formed to promote its Membership, representing organisations throughout the industrial and commercial insulation industry. Through training and industry best practice, TICA can demonstrate that thermal insulation saves both energy and costs for their clients.

The National Joint Council for the Thermal Insulation Contracting Industry (NJCTICI) was founded in 1959, with TICA being the sole employer signatory body along with the GMB and the T & GW Unions. In 1981, TICA also became one of three employer bodies signatory to the National Agreement for the Engineering Construction Industry (NAECI), which covers the terms and agreements of engineering construction projects. A significant proportion of TICA's work is involved in providing advice and support to member companies on industrial relations, employment and training matters.
