Our Story

Our journey began in 1963. Business was straightforward; sell better air tools to car manufacturers. Three generations later Stak continues to be a leader in threaded fastening distribution but our vision has diversified. We have grown from a reseller of choice to custom equipment experts. Doing business with over 40 plants has enriched our understanding of automotive production. Our success allowed investment in quality people which strengthened our team. Today, our customers rely on Stak to make them among the most efficient in the world, saving them millions of dollars a year. We strive to exceed customer expectations and ultimately that is what our story is about… You.

Ed Stak founded Stak Industries Inc. in 1963. As a close friend of High Whitehouse, founder of Stanley Air Tools, Ed moved his family from Cleveland to Toronto to establish the first international sales and service organization for Stanley Air Tools. In the 80’s and 90’s Les Cottam grew the business at a staggering rate and laid the foundation for our specialty in launching large projects.

In 2004, Stak Industries founded Third House Solutions as a separate business unit to provide greater focus on service, custom equipment and integration. Stak Industries now does business with every major automotive manufacturer in Canada and the US providing ergonomic assembly solutions to the automotive market. Stak Industries enjoys a wealth of experience in numerous facets of all tiers of the motor vehicle industry. Leveraging this diverse knowledge base, Stak Industries develops best practices for threaded fastening and material handling solutions, including equipment commissioning, product launch, project management and life cycle management. Stak Industries built it’s reputation on being a trustworthy supplier willing to do what it takes to ensure it’s customers are satisfied. Without question, the two aspects of Stak Industries that have contributed to the success of the company are people and partners.
