Orange, California (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
The Raymond Group, a full-service, interior and exterior, specialty contractor, and Sto Corp., announced today an integration between two affiliate companies that will streamline the production of prefabricated wall panels. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Sto is an innovative leader and producer of a broad range of versatile cladding and coating systems for building construction, maintenance and restoration.
The integration, developed by Sto Corp. in support with The Raymond Group, is part of the systemized approach to prefabricated wall panels. In order to bring Sto Panel Technology to life, Sto is joining forces with Raymond who will be responsible for the expansion of the prefabricated wall panel line in California, Nevada, Washington and Arizona. “As an industry, we are always looking for ways to expand the use of Wall Panels versus other cladding options,” says David Boivin, President of Sto Corp. “The combination of The Raymond Group’s expertise in the areas of panel engineering, panel construction, delivery and assembly on site, along with Sto’s products, technology and building science knowledge, makes this a natural partnership.”
Sto Corp. began its Sto Panel Technology Network of Affiliates in 2012, in an effort “to ensure that consistent standards and methodologies are shared by all panel manufacturers across the nation, allowing Sto to confidently compete with other cladding options, fully taking advantage of the better costs that we can offer to the building owners and architects,” says Dominick Baruffi II, Executive Director of Sto Panel Technology for Sto Corp. With the newest addition of The Raymond Group, Sto Corp. now has 10 Sto Panel Technology Affiliates with 34 offices spanning across the US.
“This is an exciting time as this relationship represents Raymond’s continued progress into new areas of our industry. Being an affiliate with Sto is a tremendous opportunity for both Sto Corp. and Raymond. It provides for immediate access to a larger national experience and knowledge base. The combination of Raymond’s and Sto’s technical and practical experiences creates efficiencies which are unmatched in the industry. As an affiliate, Raymond will be able to offer prefabricated wall panel systems which provide greater value and quality to our customers while installed in a safer and more productive manner,” says Travis Winsor, CEO of The Raymond Group.
