The Sto Group an international company with its head office in Weizen, Germany can trace its origins back to a lime and cement works established in 1835. After acquiring the company in 1936 it is the Stotmeister family’s development of cement free organically bound renders in 1955 and StoTherm Classic insulation system in 1960s that has sustained Sto’s success. Today Sto remains committed to those primary objectives of delivering products for sustainable, environmentally-friendly construction.
Today, Sto offer a full range of paints, plasters, renders and insulation systems for both interior and exterior use. With other subsidiaries producing StoVentec exterior insulated facade rain screen’s and StoSilent acoustic interior panelling the range of innovative products just keeps growing.
Stoanz Limited originated as a plaster and protective coatings company, founded in 1994 by Peter and Svend Andersen. By the late nineties they had built the company to become a successful residential render business, but they were frustrated by the lack of quality materials in the NZ market. In 1999 Svend successfully secured the Australasian distribution rights for all Sto products after a trip to Germany, transforming the business and beginning the current long standing partnership.

In order to define and implement its ecological targets, Sto has developed a system of environmental management conforming to international standards. This relates to the entire process chain - from the procurement of the raw product, to production, packaging and logistics.
