Longhorn Casing Tools

Trevor at Longhorn Casing Tools has a great challenge– his business is growing! Their proprietary technologies have enhanced their capabilities, making them the preferred supplier of casing, tubing, and coil tubing solutions. The growth Longhorn is experiencing has kept them busy and their warehouse full. In fact, to keep up with the demand of their clients they required additional storage space to keep workflow and access to inventory as smooth and efficient as possible.

Home Hardware Mezzanine

Home Hardware in Lethbridge, Alberta reached out to Foothills Systems when they began growing at a faster rate than their building could handle. With warehouse space limited at their prized location, demand was becoming challenging to keep up with. More space was required to continue to offer their customers what they had come to expect: inventory of everything they wanted at the location they had come to trust. Home Hardware knew it was time to act, to ensure their customers received the best experience possible.

MAXgreen Windows

Adam, the owner of MAXgreen, was experiencing growth at his window and door company as word of mouth spread about the high quality of his service and installations. He required more storage so he could house more inventory and take control of his installation timelines. This would allow MAXgreen to refine their schedule and deliver solutions in the timely manner that their customers had come to expect. With every project being different, Adam needed a super flexible storage option that would house varying sizes of windows and doors, and protect them from tipping, twisting, and breakage. He needed a heavy duty and reliable storage solution.

Mobile Parts Department

Rocky Mountain Equipment wanted to create an on-site service and repair solution for their heavy duty equipment out in the field. They were looking to have a mobile trailer unit that would bring parts, tools and equipment where it was needed most. It would essentially be a mobile parts department. Safety, Organization, Security and Affordability were all requirements that had to be met for the system to achieve their goals.

Wacker Neuson Racking

Wacker Neuson had experienced great success at their location in Calgary, extending their trusted brand in the Construction Equipment field. With overall growth and seasonal peaks in demand, the South Calgary location moved to a larger warehouse a few doors down in the same building, and had to make the most efficient and economical use of their space.

Husqvarna Calgary

When Husqvarna opened a new location in Calgary, they contacted Foothills Systems to supply shelving and racking to their warehouse. A Storage Expert from Foothills Systems met with the owner, Shawn, and asked questions about how the new location would operate. Shawn explained how they needed to control inventory and create a secure area for contractors and visitors to enter the building. Shawn needed some areas picked and loaded by forklift, others to store tiny nuts, bolts and other inventory, and they had a little of everything in between.

Environmental Consulting

A local environmental consulting firm had moved into a new building in Calgary’s upstart Quarry Park commercial neighbourhood. They required a storage solution for their service vehicle bays. The variety of what they needed to store posed a challenge: could one system store work equipment, tools, supplies, hard hats, coveralls, boots, and tires for snow and summer? Some of the tools were valuable and posed a shrinkage risk, while other materials posed safety risks to employees. They needed to organize to eliminate tripping hazards, store their stuff, and keep enough space for two work vehicles to be in the bay at once.

Heartland Ford

Heartland Ford in Fort Saskatchewan was moving to an all-new location, and needed an efficient storage solution for their parts department. Easily finding and accessing fast moving parts was essential to the health of their inventory, and ensuring they could meet customer’s demands as quickly as possible.

Central Alberta Auto

A central Alberta auto dealership needed more space to devote to profitable areas of their business like service and shop bays; however expansion was a costly venture that would eat up inventory space that was already at capacity. The sheer volume of parts and inventory was tough to control and access, creating a concern for security, inventory damage, and employee safety.

Rocky Mountain Equipment

Business at Rocky Mountain Equipment was good, and it was time to consider expanding their operation to meet their customer’s needs. Expansion would be very costly and it would take a long time for them to see a return on such a large investment. Equally worrisome was the prospect of encroaching on valuable yard space where inventory was being stored. Without additional space the growth of the business would be stifled, so a creative solution was imperative.

Pro-Am Motorsports Mezzanine

Pro-Am Motorsports in Calgary was a growing business with the need for more show room space. Different models of motorcycles, different colours and trims, parts, and more were part of their product portfolio, but customers couldn’t see or touch all the inventory. Part of buying a sports vehicle is the joy of picking out a new toy, and without a first-hand introduction, the purchase is just not as exciting. Excitement drives sales in a lifestyle industry like Motorsports- so what could they do? Moving and expansion were not attractive options- they love their location, and expansion was far too costly.

More Snow Tires, More Sales

Every winter, an automotive dealership faces the same problem. They have to stock enough winter tires for the first snowfall of the year, or they miss out on a very profitable season because they simply can’t meet demand. They had limited space, and expanding the storage area was far too costly. Storing off site didn’t provide the accessibility their customers wanted, and affected their installation workflow.

Shaw Security Cages

Shaw Communications in Calgary needed to address security concerns in two areas of their Hopewell location. In the first area, their internal IT teams require secure access to expensive tools and equipment. With various teams having the same access to inventory, tracking had become difficult. Additionally, in Shaw’s busy warehouse they often have suppliers, visitors, and sometimes unauthorized personnel enter the warehouse. This created the risk of unauthorized access to inventory. It was an obvious security risk that Shaw needed to eliminate.
