Product & Service Reviews

"Northern Strands offers high quality service with fast and quick delivery on both the certification of rigging and products we require for our projects"

Rees Davies // Procurement & Project Manager // Weld Fab Ltd.

"I got a 2-1/4" 'Superdan' tow rope from Northern Strands for my mud truck. It floats, they have common sizes in stock and it’s less expensive than a normal tow strap. Highly recommended!"

Aaron Hill // Shop Foreman // Hikon Industries Ltd.

"We loved all the Vitali-Intl products. We used everything from the lever hoists, chain hoists to the beam clamps on our last job. Would recommend these products to any company."

Steve Slusar // WS Plumbing and Heating

"I'd like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude for your services to date at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. We had a rocky start with the project due to so many parties being involved for regulations and safety policies, though our team and your team handled the situation with ease and professionalism."

Tanya Sandluck // Sr. Project Manager // Onsite Sign Group

"We used a few 1.6 tonne x 10' lever hoists from Northern Strands for a re-rope job and they worked great for the application."

Impact Mechanical

"We used the Vitali-Int hoists from Northern Stands to lift our weigh scale weights out to be recalibrated and they worked perfect!"

The University of Saskatchewan is currently making major upgrades to some of its key campus buildings, including the Murray Library. One of the most noticeable changes to the building's exterior is the replacement of two concrete panels with windows. The new windows are energy-efficient and will provide much-needed natural light to the 60-year-old building. The installation of the "waterfall" windows that span from the 3rd to the 6th floor on the north and south sides of the building... Read more

When was the last time you checked to see when your employees (or your own), safety training certifications expired? Likely not since before Covid lockdowns almost 2 years ago...Fall protection training is one certification in particular you do not want to let lapse.
