In 1955 the name was changed to Sterling Precision Corp. On August 23, 1979, the company became Steego Corporation. This firm was also a major manufacturer and distributor of metal working machinery, freight load and solid waste handling equipment, and office related products. Steego acquired a manufacturer of files and binders named Elbe Products. The products are used in offices. Elbe albums are used by collectors for stamps and first-day covers. The American-La France-Foamite Corp. was another subsidiary of Sterling Precision.  The famous American-La France fire truck is still manufactured in a large plant in South Carolina.

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
