For the love of building
Building with Conscience.
A building that is built the right way, is built to last: with the right partner, the right materials and with the future in mind. We bring your projects to life. Together. Aesthetically, sustainably and functionally.
Building with Sto means acting sustainably.
Sustainability has the highest priority at Sto- both on a product level and on a company level. Our facade insulation systems are just one example of many: from 1965 to 2020, they saved around 370 million tonnes of CO2. Thanks to findings from our research & development expert team, our products and systems make it possible to create eco-friendly buildings and execute energy-efficient refurbishments. Our headquarters in Stühlingen runs on green electricity and has also obtained climate protection certificates to compensate for their carbon emissions. Our aim is it to become fully climate-neutral by 2040.
We are a leading international manufacturer of products and systems for both external and interior walls and ceiling as well as industrial floor surfaces.
Our business is known first and foremost for our cement-free plaster/render finishes and reinforcement which, when used as part of our external wall insulation systems (EWIS) and rainscreen cladding systems, offer a huge choice of attractive, durable, energy-saving and hence cost effective options for refurbishment or new-build construction.
In addition to our comprehensive range of façade renders and intelligent technology paints we also offer a portfolio of sound absorbing acoustic systems and solutions for concrete restoration.
