All of the systems offered within the Stobitan® line are a combination of our highly trusted Stobielast® S product line.

The concept of the logo is a combination of a letter mark and pictorial mark.The negative space resembles track lanes and lines on an athletic field.Additionally, the grid is to mimic the bottom of a shoe.The repeated shapes communicate reliability and trust.The geometric construction conveys both organization and efficiency.
