Blast furnaces and molten metal sound more akin to the steel mills of Gary and Western Pennsylvania, but halfway between Old U.S. 24 and Little River on Broadway Street in Huntington is an industry that mirrors the large steel mills of the past.

Isolatek International, home to about 50 employees, is the only manufacturer of life-safety spray-applied mineral fiber insulation in the United States.
