Fit Tight Covers announced today it has joined two mechanical insulation industry associations — the Central States Insulation Association (CSIA) and the Midwest Insulation Contractors Association (MICA).
As a fabricator of removable insulation covers for industrial and commercial insulation systems, Fit Tight Covers joins CSIA as a “distributor/fabricator” and MICA as an “associate member,” along with other manufacturers and distributors. Membership in these two trade associations will help raise awareness of the benefits of removable covers as a simple, cost-effective alternative for traditional mechanical insulation.
Fit Tight design specialist Calvin Brasel explains, “CSIA and MICA offer unique networking opportunities with many leaders within the mechanical insulation industry, and we look forward to sharing with them the Fit Tight commitment to quality and innovation.”
CSIA and MICA serve to facilitate communication, leadership, and educational opportunities among commercial and industrial insulation and abatement contractors within their respective regions, as well as manufacturers, distributors, and material supply firms from across the country and beyond. Both are regional affiliates of the National Insulation Association and offer various educational and networking opportunities throughout the year. CSIA serves 48 union contractors in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and West Virginia.
Established in 1956, MICA is the proud creator of the National Commercial and Industrial Insulation Standards Manual. Its 70 contractor members are located throughout 12 Midwestern states, including North Dakota, Arkansas, Nebraska and Illinois.

Fit Tight Covers is proud to be the supplier of removable insulation covers for Duke Energy’s new power plant in Edwardsport, Indiana. This project is one of the largest construction projects in the United States at this time. Such a large project is a great opportunity for Fit Tight Covers to prove that we have the resources and experience to meet high demand for all types of custom insulation covers.
Since April of last year, we have fabricated and installed about 750 Fit Tight Covers for Duke. Over the next 86 weeks, we expect to fabricate and install about 9500 more covers for the Duke IGCC project. The project requires every type of cover manufactured for a variety of temperatures and environments. We appreciate that Duke chose a Hoosier-owned, -managed and -staffed company to provide its covers for this huge Indiana project.
