Sto Corp. Celebrates 25 Years in Canada

Sto Corp., a producer of a broad range of versatile cladding and coating systems for building construction, maintenance and restoration, launched Sto Industries Canada in 1987, and is happy to celebrate 25 years, maintaining a consistent presence across the country. Sto products are distributed in 30 locations from New Brunswick to British Columbia.

Sto has maintained memberships and affiliations with numerous Canadian building envelope organizations and is a licensed manufacturer with the EIFS Quality Assurance Program. In addition, Sto is among the founding members of the EIFS Council Canada, an organization dedicated to establishing industry-wide standards. In 2003, Sto received a CCMC (Canadian Control Material Center) Evaluation for StoGuard Gold Fill as an air barrier material, and Sto is the only EIFS manufacturer to receive an evaluation as an air barrier. Now, in 2012, Sto became the first and only manufacturer to receive a CCMC evaluation report for a liquid-applied, water-resistive barrier as a sheathing membrane behind all claddings. StoGuard performed six times better than the code solution.

Also in 2012, Sto Corp. named John Edgar, a Sto veteran for more than 20 years, as technical director for Canada. Edgar has held positions including past president and current director of the EIFS Council of Canada; former member of the Standing Committee on Environmental Separation (part 5) National Building Code Canada; chairman, ULC Standards S716 Task Group for EIFS; representative for EIFS Council of Canada on ULC S700 Committee; and development partner for EIFS QAP (Quality Assurance Program). He has been nominated to the secretary position of the ISO TC (Technical Committee) 163 SC3 on insulation. Among the many items on the agenda for this committee will be the development of a global EIFS Standard.
