Soprema, Inc., founded in 1908, is a manufacturer and contracting company (contracting in Europe only). We have 8 manufacturing of SBS engineered asphaltic membrane.
Contrasting with other roofing membrane producers, Soprema is uniquely qualified in SBS technology based on our extraordinary track record on innovation and experience which runs the gauntlet from chemical engineering and manufacturing through system design and installation technology. We currently offer 10 installation methods for ease of application and design flexibility.
Involved since the inception of the concept of "engineered asphaltic membranes" we have consistently devoted a significant percentage of our annual expenditures to R & D in chemical engineering. In principle, elastomeric asphalt offers the remarkable qualities of pure waterproofing with great cyclic fatigue resistance. Longevity, however, is built upon the crucible of chemical engineering. We have pioneered several key components to today's the present state-of-the-art in blending technology. These innovations, tremendous resistance to heat aging and cyclic fatigue, have been adopted and become integral to the de facto standards for chemical blending by producers from around the world.
In manufacturing, Soprema has set the standard for quality assurance and productivity. Determined to develop our own proprietary products, Soprema made a commitment to design and build our own SBS manufacturing lines. The result is state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities based on the high quality control and unrivaled mechanical engineering to make highly technical product designs. All of our facilities are certified to in compliance with ISO 9002 criteria. This systemic quality program creates a written (independently audited) record of all of our production parameters. Our Canadian facility was the first roofing material manufacturer to earn ISO 9000 status in North America in 1993. Our Wadsworth facility was certified in 1996.
Our design and installation expertise, a traditional pitfall for most producers, is a legendary strength of Soprema. The vast majority of our work in France is in the installation of dual SBS membrane systems where the market requirement stipulates an automatic 10-year labor warranty. This harsh regulatory environment has forged an installation technology that is practical and cost effective for the contractor, specifier and owner. Our U.S. long-term warranty program is based upon real world successes that equal or exceed conventional warranty agreements of 10, 15 and 20 years.
Finally, our approach is to bring our expertise to those who appreciate and understand its value. We have successfully completed projects in over 60 countries on five continents in every conceivable climate. We are capable of this unique approach because we are true SBS technologists. Our proven track record of 25 plus years of demonstrated value to contractors, specifiers and owners is silent testimony to a superior system design and installation philosophy combined with a great revolutionary idea, elastomeric asphalt. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
