THE SATA STRATEGY
EQUIPMENT, TRAINING AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
SATA Canada is headquartered in Vaughan, Ontario. The facility occupies a total of 1,395 sq. m., including offices, warehouse and training centre. The headquarters also features a service and repair facility with the goal of turning any product around within a 24-hour period.
SATA Canada recently received approval from the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development to offer an automotive painter apprenticeship program at its in-house training centre.
SATA spray equipment has been available in Canada since the 1980s. 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. The company’s close cooperation with painters from various trades and industries as well as its 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: reliability, durability and ergonomics of their SATA products are not something to be questioned.
The home of the SATA brand is Kornwestheim, a town in the district of Ludwigsburg, Baden-Württemberg, about 10 kilometers north of Stuttgart. SATA is a leading spray gun manufacturer with 276 employees, active in over 100 markets worldwide with 2,436 customers. SATA has a long history of producing superior products of the highest quality dating back to 1907. The company’s original focus was on medical instruments but began production of spray guns in 1925.
Throughout its history SATA has focused on meeting the demands of new technologies and perfecting its equipment to attain consistency for the industry. In 2005, SATA pioneered a multi-purpose 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 health protection and the SATAjet X 5500 spray gun.
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. Using only one spray gun. Launched in early 2021 the new SATA filter 500 series offers bodyshops 100% technically clean air.
The SATA filter series 500 is available either as a one-stage sintered filter with water and oil separator, as a two-stage combination filter with sintered and fine filter, or as a three-stage filter unit with additional sintered activated charcoal filter. Every six months, all filter stages are maintained together in a procedure that takes just a few minutes without the need for tools, thanks to the bayonet lock and defined position of the filter cartridges, which are replaced simply by inserting them.
For the first time in more than fifteen years, apprentice and working painters will have the ability to achieve a 410N painter certification (Red Seal equivalent).
SATA Canada announced its first Automotive Painter (410N) apprenticeship course. The Ontario college program will run an 8-week / 5 day a week sessions; open to new students and those already in the industry wishing to upgrade their skills to become a tradesperson meeting the national standard in their trade.
SATA Canada is dedicated to addressing the skilled labour shortage in the re-finish industry. It is our privilege to train the next generation of painters for a safe and dynamic career in an in-demand trade.
