The secrets of SATA Canada’s success

SATA Canada opened for business on Jan 1, 2017, the first full subsidiary of SATA GmbH & Co. KG.
SATA paint spray equipment has been available in Canada since the 1980s. The opening of SATA Canada began a new era in how the company markets and services its products for Canadian customers.

The headquarters of SATA Canada is in Vaughan, Ontario. The facility, close to Toronto, occupies a total of 15,000 sq. ft., including offices, warehouse and training centre. The headquarters also includes a service facility right in the building, with the goal of turning any product around within a 24-hour period.

Whether high-end vehicles, exclusive yachts or designer furniture, when glossy surfaces are of utmost importance, painters swear by SATA. SATA products are designed and manufactured in Germany allowing demanding customers worldwide to obtain the perfect tools, to create perfect finishes.

SATA sets the standard for paint spray guns, cup systems, breathing protection, filter technology and accessories. Our close cooperation with painters from various trades and industries as well as our research and development departments with application technicians from the leading paint manufacturers allow us to produce superior products of the highest quality.

“SATA Quality” is a firm conviction for any painter: the reliability, durability and ergonomics of their SATA products are not something to be questioned.

SATA Canada is a proud supporter of Skills Canada, providing equipment and access to our new training centre to prepare for World Skills in Kazan, Russia. SATA Canada is committed to training painters and encouraging new entrants to the refinish industry.

Autism research and community support is the focus of SATA Canada fund raising. Over the last two years at CCIF Toronto, SATA Canada has auctioned special edition and celebrity signed spray guns for charity.

SATA is a leading spray gun manufacturer with 276 employees, active in over 100 markets worldwide with 2,436 customers. The company has a long history of producing superior products of the highest quality dating back to 1907. Its original focus was on medical instruments but began production of spray guns in 1925. The following year saw the first spray gun patent and by 1931 the company had its own line of commercially available SATA branded guns.

In 1990 SATA introduced its High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) and Reduced Pressure (RP) technologies, which gave painters more options for atomization, while addressing growing environmental concerns.

In 2005 SATA pioneered a disposable cup system, SATA RPS (Rapid Preparation System) for the efficient mixing, painting, refilling and storing of paint. SATA continues a tradition of quality and technological leadership with the introduction of the SATA air vision 5000 system for painter health protection and the SATA trueSun LED colour check lamp.

Introduced to North America at SEMA 2018, the new SATAjet X 5500 with the revolutionary SATA X-nozzle system dramatically changes the landscape of the refinish industry. SATA is the first spray gun manufacturer to offer a nozzle system based on two distinct spray fan shapes for each nozzle size. Parallel and oval-shaped. The SATAjet X 5500 provides an incredible wealth of perfect solutions. For all kinds of painters. For all kinds of paint systems and climatic conditions. For all kinds of objects to be painted. Using only one spray gun.

At SATA our success is an obligation to us. Our employees and distribution network will always do our best to ensure painting will remain plain fun.
