What We Do

In 1974, Andry Lagsdin decided he wanted to create a new kind of stabilizer pad for backhoes—one that could be used on both soft, turf-like surfaces and hard, paved surfaces just by flipping it over. After years of perseverance, he created the perfect stabilizer pad—and in the meantime, Stoughton Steel Company Inc. was born. (Click here for the detailed story.)   

Today, Stoughton Steel is run by Andry’s son, Eric Lagsdin. We are the world’s leading manufacturer of reversible stabilizer pads for rubber tire backhoes, and the expert manufacturer of FlipPad International and Baking Steel.

We pride ourselves in pleasing our customers through creating high-quality, innovative products, which is why we’ve worked diligently to acquire and maintain our ISO 9001:2008 certification.
