HISTORY OF SHIP 2 SHORE
In the late 1980s, Terry Laing, a marine applicator on the West Coast of Canada, teamed up
with a chemist to develop S2S® wet film products. As an applicator, Terry had become frustrated with the quality and longevity of corrosion inhibitor products available on the market. His expertise enabled him to help develop safe, easy-to-use and long lasting products. Until his retirement in 2016, Terry continued to apply S2S products to a loyal list of clients in the Pacific Northwest.
Today Ship 2 Shore is a leading manufacturer of innovative corrosion preventive solutions available worldwide. Although our range has grown, our mission has never changed. We remain committed to formulating premium rust inhibitors that extend asset life cycles, improve operational readiness and reduce total cost of ownership without harming the environment.
S2S products are proudly manufactured in Canada and the USA. Although our roots lay in the marine industry, we now offer an extensive line of anti-corrosion products formulated to protects assets across various industries, including transportation, construction, infrastructure, energy, agriculture, electric power and defense.
TRUSTED BY THE US NAVY
For more than twenty years, Ship 2 Shore has been proudly protecting marine assets belonging to the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Coast Guard. In 2022, after months of rigorous testing, S2S CPC 500 was qualified under MIL-PRF 16173E as a corrosion preventive compound and Ship 2 Shore was officially accepted as a supplier to the US Department of Defense.
In response to the growing demand from armed forces for new and effective ways to prevent corrosion on their assets, Ship 2 Shore introduced its Armed Forces line of corrosion preventive solutions. All S2S Armed Forces products have been assigned NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) and are available for procurement through the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). At Ship 2 Shore, we are committed to helping the armed forces win the war on corrosion.
