Our Happy Clients

The City of Chestermere was looking to put a mezzanine and shelving in our parts room expansion this year. Janelle met with me and spent time listening to what we were looking for, taking notes and measurements to ensure that she was hearing what we wanted. I appreciated the time and effort put forth by Janelle, her professionalism and also her understanding. You have a great product and great employees. When the opportunity arises, I will contact you again in the hopes of doing business with you.
Dale Jansen, Purchaser, The City of Chestermere
Global Training is very pleased with both products (Mizer Mobile System & Rivet-span System). For both, Foothills System provided us excellent customer service and accommodated every request that we had. Mickey was amazing to work with, he was very personable and professional, he took pride in our project and it resulted in a very successful install. Our end products accommodate our needs as a growing business. Thanks Foothills Systems!
Debbie Bingham, Global Training Centre
Foothills (Systems) was great! They did everything they could to accommodate us and made sure we were happy with our new mezzanine.

Corey Taillon, Global Training Centre
A big thank you to foothills for designing a storage solution for the awkward space. Also a round of applause for the installation crew. The install was quick and efficient. I would recommend this company to other museum institutions.
Jennifer Ross, Cold Lake Air Force Museum
Cardinal Energy Ltd. couldn’t be happier with the decision to purchase the Foothills Systems Mizer mobile shelving. The Foothills Systems group are professional, courteous and take great pride in their products. The shelving unit is practical, functional and looks great. We would not hesitate to recommend this particular system to other energy sector companies for their file storage needs.
Tracy Smith, Petroleum Engineering Technologist Cardinal Energy Ltd.
Just wanted you to know that Gary and Marvin did an awesome job installing my library shelving. Both of your men were friendly and answered all my questions. The install was done in a professional and timely manner which was greatly appreciated.

Denise Bjorkman, Petroleum Engineering Technologist Cardinal Energy Ltd.
I just finished installing all ten sections of the Record Master storage units for our mobile racks and they fit real well and went together very easily. I can put three in for the same time it takes me to take one of our old bolted ones out. They also look great.

Thanks again for all your help in making sure we got just what we needed.

Reno Laseur, Fort McMurray Historical Society
I would like to thank Chris and Gary for their superior service this year in supplying and building our shelves and other furniture when we rebuilt our library in Slave Lake. Chris in particular has been a great resource in planning and purchasing items that fit our needs and budget.
Shane Parmar , Slave Lake Library
The mobile storage units provided by Foothills Systems exceeded our expectations. From design to installation Foothills was professional, punctual and very easy to work with. Their Storage Systems Consultant took the necessary time to listen to our needs, document the appropriate measurements and come up with a solution for several different applications that will greatly assist our staff in their day to day work.
