Established in 1975, Algoma began as a commercial painting contractor doing painting and coating work for institutions, universities, offices, arenas, etc. across southern Ontario.
In 1985 Giuseppe Fortino became a partner in the business and saw an opportunity in the industrial sector. The company began to evolve and expand, and Algoma started to complete many large industrial projects focusing on the sewer and wastewater treatment industry.
Giuseppe Fortino’s sons, Eugene and Marco Fortino grew up in the industrial painting and coatings business and were involved with the company beginning at a young age. Eugene and Marco, along with their cousin Frank Presta, eventually took ownership of the company and Algoma continues to be family-owned today.
Algoma Contractors Inc. is proud to operate with its same founding values: to provide reliable service and quality workmanship, while delivering every coatings project on time and on budget.
As our company continues to evolve and grow, providing our clients with reliable and quality coating services remains our top priority.
Our vision is to become Ontario’s leading coatings contractor, providing superior industrial waterproofing, sandblasting, coating, and concrete restoration services.
