AWA – Sasco Drops By For A Visit

This month’s meeting of the Atlantic Woodworkers Association featured a visit and demonstration from the owners and staff of Sasco Products Limited.

Sasco Products, formerly known locally as ChemCraft, manufactures and carries a full spectrum of environmentally responsible wood coatings and finishes, wood protection and wood preservation for every market.

Sasco Products Limited started its operations in 1978 in the province of Nova Scotia and was founded by Sam Sorensen.

Sam obtained his certificate of master painter from the Danish Technological Institute in Copenhagen where he learned the skills and techniques of gold leaf, grinding and mixing the paint. Sam immigrated to Canada in 1951 and started to work as a painter in the province of Ontario and later on in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Sam has always been keen to share his knowledge and expertise with other colleagues and employees. In 1988 Lissi Jeppesen joined Sasco Products. Lissi is a Chemical Engineer and she has brought the technical expertise and vision to Sasco Products in order to develop and promote green and water-based wood products.

Both Sam and his wife, Lissie, spoke extensively on a wide variety of products, explaining their use and how to apply them properly for best results.
