President’s Message

presidentSince 1989 Foster Walker has been in the business of providing unique custom gifts to corporations, individuals, and the meetings and incentive industries. We are proud to be a Canadian/American owned business with offices in Canada and the USA. Recently we have shipped our products to customers in Italy, Germany, Brazil,  Japan, Hawaii, South Korea, and England along with our regular orders in Canada and the United States.

We have always been a socially and environmentally responsible company with the mandate to use materials that are biodegradable, reusable, and recyclable and even our delivery service uses hybrid vehicles. The first article written about our Eco-friendly company was in Business in Vancouver in 1995 and we have been featured in many other publications over the past 20 years. We recently started a partnership with an organization who gives employment to people with disabilities and creates products and packaging using recycled materials which is a big win for everyone. We support many non-profit organizations and purchase products where a portion of the profit goes to charity as well as donating products and a portion of our profits to a number of charities worldwide.

We try to source as many products in Canada and the United States as we can but that is not always possible. We do make sure that our off shore suppliers are part of the Quality Certification Alliance and meet the requirements of the Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act and are committed to providing high quality, safe products for our customers.
