About us

At Stedfast our business is built on a Passion to Protect.  A family business that strives to bring you value and quality from beginning to end. 

Stedfast is a world leader in protective barrier technologies. Since our founding in 1930, Stedfast has been a family-owned company with passionate teams.  Our headquarters in Granby, Quebec has been producing innovative coated and laminated technical textiles for 90 years.  With the addition of our facility in Johnson City, Tennessee and our acquisition of new equipment in Granby, we are operating 2-state-of-the-art facilities for manufacturing, testing and R&D.  Both facilities are operated by skilled teams of managers, engineers and technicians.  

Every member of the Stedfast team is passionate about ensuring that we provide the best in multifunctional barrier materials, because we believe in protecting those who protect us.

Our STEDAIR® waterproof, breathable and chemical resistant barriers are designed with new technology that improves protection and comfort.  

We select the appropriate barrier technology to provide the proper protection.  Our STEDAIR® PREVENT provides high air permeability for comfort while protecting end-users from potentially carcinogenic smoke particles by blocking greater than 99.9%.  Our STEDAIR® GOLD exceeds the performance specified in NFPA 1971 by providing a much higher degree of thermal protection without compromising comfort for firefighters.  Our STEDAIR® medical barriers protect healthcare personnel from the transfer of blood-borne pathogens and fluid penetration. STEDAIR® COBALT and STEDAIR® TUNGSTEN provide superior balance of comfort and protection for industrial chemical professionals.  And our STEDAIR®, STEDTHANE®, and STEDPRENE® products protect militaries around the world.

Stedfast is run by a family of forward-thinking investors with long-term business goals. 

We re-invest a significant amount of our profits annually to ensure that our products are always on the leading-edge of technology.  

As part of our commitment to protect the environment, Stedfast has recently invested in the acquisition of a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO). This equipment essentially eliminates the emission of VOC’s and other air contaminates resulting from our processing while reusing the heat and saving energy.

Stedfast is committed to protecting the end-users with our products by offering only the best technologies and performance.

We are pleased to partner with you to develop or supply the best performance currently available.  We are happy to arrange visits to our facilities so that we can demonstrate our expertise and work closely to provide a custom solution.
