1. We support the local economy since we employ more than 800 people from our communities. Over the last three years, our new employee hiring rate has increased by an average of 9%.

2. We provide rapid supply services thanks to our 11 insulation and waterproofing plants strategically located across Canada, including one in Chilliwack (BC) with more than 40 employees.

3. All profits made in Canada are reinvested in Canada.

4. Remarkable growth: Since our establishment in Canada in 1978, we have built or acquired 11 plants, including 6 in the past five years. The last 3 facilities we built were a polyisocyanurate insulation plant located in Drummondville (2015), an XPS insulation plant in Sherbrooke (2018), and a waterproofing membrane plant in Ontario (2020).

5. RESISTO products are distributed through 1,600 points of sale across Canada.

6. We provide quick and comprehensive service to contractors and distributors thanks to our 45 sales representatives from coast to coast.

7. Doing business with a company located in Canada also promotes the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation. For instance, a truck leaving from a plant located in Chilliwack delivering waterproofing membranes in Vancouver produces approximately 97% less greenhouse gas than a truck from a plant located in Southern USA delivering to the same place.

8. Our customer service is responsive across Canada thanks to our 10 customer service agents. 

9. Shipping from within Canada ensures efficient delivery and reduced logistics costs, along with guaranteed independence and peace of mind in the face of unexpected border hassles and the currency exchange.

10. SOPREMA and RESISTO employees are remarkably active in their communities all across Canada, whether by serving Christmas lunches to families in need, organizing golf tournaments for the benefit of a palliative care home, or collecting food for the needy.
