Algoma Contractors Inc.

Our History

Where We Came From

Established in 1975, Algoma began as a commercial painting contractor. Contracts at the time included coating work for institutions, universities, offices, arenas, and more. In 1985 Giuseppe Fortino became a partner in the business and saw an opportunity for protective coatings in the industrial sector. The business began to evolve and expand, and Algoma began to complete many large industrial projects with a focus on the sewer and wastewater treatment industry.

Giuseppe Fortino’s sons, Eugene and Marco Fortino, grew up in the coatings industry and were involved with the company beginning at a young age. Eugene and Marco, along with their cousin Frank Presta, eventually took over ownership of the company and Algoma continues to be family-owned operating with the same founding values to provide quality workmanship and complete projects on time and on budget.

Where We're Going

As our company continues to evolve and grow, providing our clients with reliable and quality service remains our top priority. We offer engineered solutions, exceptional customer service and prompt delivery to ensure client satisfaction. Our vision is to become Southern Ontario’s leader in industrial and commercial painting, waterproofing and concrete restoration services.
