In addition to being an industry leader in design and customer service, Stala strives to be an industry leader in research and information dissemination. To that end, we frequently publish articles and white papers in leading trade publication venues, such as Construction Specifier and The Military Engineer. A list of our publications, with short descriptions and links to pdfs, follows. If you are a publisher or potential collaborator interested in discussing a possible publication project, please contact Chris Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
