History

Proud of its history and success, RESISTO is more motivated than ever to keep moving forward on the path of innovation in an ever-changing market. Here are some highlights of RESISTO’s history:

 

1996

The SOPREMA plant acquires an additional production unit for self-adhesive membranes used in air tightness and roofing applications. This same unit also allows SOPREMA to launch the RESISTO residential product line.

 

2001

A first soundproofing product is created: INSONOMAT. This innovation and all those that follow propel RESISTOSOUND as a leader in sound insulation a few years later.

 

2004

Awards and distinctions: INSONOMAT is named Innovative Product of the Year by the APCHQ (Québec Association of Residential and Construction Professionals).

 

2006

SOPREMA acquires Les Produits Expertseal Inc. in Mercier.

EXPERTSEAL manufactures a range of asphalt surface protection products. This product line includes primers, sealing coatings, levelling and crack bridging mixtures, along with sealants and accessories for asphalt repair. These products continue to be sold under the name EXPERTSEAL.

 

2007

SOPREMA buys the assets of Poly-Tech Radiant, located in Beauport. Poly-Tech Radiant is a manufacturer of the Ayr-Foil line of reflective insulation products. This new acquisition in the insulation field nicely complements the wide range of waterproofing membranes and asphalt maintenance products already offered to retailers by RESISTO.

Awards and distinctions: Prestige Partner at the RONA Spring Trade Show.
