Footprint Tools Canada Limited was established in 1980 to warehouse and market the products of Footprint Tools Limited, a British hand tool manufacturer in Sheffield England.
Over the next few years, Footprint Tools Canada expanded to become exclusive distributors, and sales representatives for other non-conflicting hand tool companies. This arrangement enabled Footprint Tools to market an extensive range of hand tools to their Canadian customer base.
We currently have such exclusive arrangements with Empire Level Mfg., Affinity Tool Works, Snap-On Industrial Brands, Mag Instrument, Komelon-USA, Homelux Nenplas, Palram Applications, FlowerHouse, Heaven & Earth, Kay Home Products, Breola, and Tot’s Play.
Today from our warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario, and a sales force of fourteen sales and service representatives, we market our product lines coast to coast to every major retailer and distributor in Canada.
Footprint Tools Canada is very dominant in the retail consumer market, with the highest market share in Canada on some of its product categories.
Footprint products are sold as private label, and, or, as a national brand to customers such as Canadian Tire, Sears Canada, Home Hardware, Home Depot, Chalifour Canada, Rona, Costco, Lowes Canada, Wal-Mart Canada only to name a few.
In addition to the Retail Hardware market, Footprint Tools Canada is also very active in the Industrial, Contractor, and Rental markets. We have established a very large customer base of contractor supply outlets, industrial distributors, and retailers coast to coast.
Footprint Tools Canada Limited takes great pride in their dedication in offering outstanding customer service and quality products. Our sales representatives rank at the very top within the industry, and many have over twenty- five years of sales experience in the hardware industry.
