The Northwest Territories – Tier-Rack, Home of the Original Stacking Frame
Our experienced sales team will make sure that we design the rack that you need to handle your unique pallet load and application. We ask the right questions and find the right answers. Our recommendation may be a simple rack off the shelf or you may need the help of our engineering department.
As a founder of the Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI) we helped establish industry standards followed by reputable manufacturers of both standard pallet racking and our specialty—portable stack racks. This means that not only is the rack right for your application, but also that your warehouse and shipping personnel can be confident in the safety and suitability of the equipment
About the Northwest Territories
The Northwest Territories (NWT; French: les Territoires du Nord-Ouest, TNO) is one of three federal territories of Canada. The Northwest Territories entered the Canadian Confederation July 15, 1870, but the current borders were formed April 1, 1999, with the creation of Nunavut.
It had a population of 41,462 as of the 2011 census, showing little change from the 2006 census.
In 1967, as a result of recommendations by the Carrothers Commission, Yellowknife became the capital.
While neighbouring Nunavut is mostly Arctic tundra, the Northwest Territories has a slightly warmer climate and is mostly boreal forest (taiga), although about half of the territory is north of the tree line.
The name is descriptive, adopted by the British government during the colonial era to indicate where it lay in relation to Rupert's Land. It is shortened from North-Western Territory. In Inuktitut, the Northwest Territories are referred to as ᓄᓇᑦᓯᐊᖅ (Nunatsiaq), "beautiful land."
There was some discussion of changing the name of the Northwest Territories after the splitting off of Nunavut, possibly to a term from an Aboriginal language. One proposal was "Denendeh" (an Athabaskan language word meaning "our land"), as advocated by the former premier Stephen Kakfwi, among others. One of the most popular proposals for a new name – one to name the territory "Bob" – began as a prank, but for a while it was at or near the top in the public-opinion polls.
In the end a poll conducted prior to division showed that strong support remained to keep the name "Northwest Territories". This name arguably became more appropriate following division than it had been when the territories actually extended far into Canada's north-central and northeastern areas. Wikipedia
Great Service for the Northwest Territories Customers
At Tier-Rack, our commitment to Great Service takes many forms. We have experienced people who understand how our customers use our racks, so we can understand your requirements and show you how our stack racks can meet your needs. We have provided millions of racks for thousands of customers, so there is a good chance that we have already helped someone with storage needs that are similar to yours. If you have never used portable stack racks in the past, we strongly encourage you to order a few samples before placing a larger order. Many times our new customers find that, no matter how carefully they consider their needs, once the samples arrive they discover that they need to tweak some dimension so everything fits perfectly. We would rather have you 100% satisfied with your new racks than 95% satisfied. ASK FOR A COPY OF OUR SAMPLE POLICY.
