Kryton Celebrates 40 Years of Concrete Waterproofing.

Vancouver, Canada, March 15, 2013 --( Like many companies, Kryton was built to solve a problem. CanWest Waterproofing Company was a waterproofing applicator that opened its doors by the current chairman of the Kryton board, R.G. (Ron) Yuers. It was soon realized that the materials they purchased from a local supplier weren't working satisfactorily. Ron decided that if there wasn't a solution available in the market, he would create one. So, he hired a chemist. After hundreds of hours in a laboratory, Krystol[R] technology was born and in 1973 Kryton was formed as a new company to launch it into a global market.

Since this launch, Kryton has been the leading manufacturer of concrete waterproofing products, using their proprietary integral crystalline formula - Krystol. This success has taken the company to a global level, with offices in Canada, China, India, Dubai and the UK. Massive projects such as Las Vegas CityCenter, Marina Bay Sands and the Palm Jumeriah were completed using Krystol Technology, propelling Kryton into new markets.

“We feel very fortunate to be a contributing member of the construction industry for these many years and look forward to many more,” says Kryton's President and CEO Kari Yuers.

Kari Yuers has been in a managerial position with Kryton since 1991 and CEO of the company since 2001. She has led the charge in legitimizing the category of integral crystalline technology and the use of admixtures for concrete waterproofing and has been recognized as the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2003 in the Business-to-Business category.

Under Kari's leadership and due to her commitment to the value of people and company culture, Kryton has become an award-winning company being recognized as one of the Best Companies to Work For in British Columbia for four consecutive years. Recently, Yuers has been appointed the new chair of the International Advisory Committee for the American Concrete Institute (ACI)

Kryton continues to evolve and adapt its product line toward future trends. By maintaining close relationships with distributors and customers world-wide, Kryton has a strong presence in the future of concrete waterproofing.
