Footersville - Structural Timber Solutions is a third generation, family owned, timber merchant started by Lawrence Footer in 1956 in a small yard in St Marys selling Western Australian hardwoods and flooring. Graeme Footer joined the business in 1965, and current Managing Director, Mark Footer, in 1990.
In 1967 operations moved to West St in Brompton and eventually grew to be over 2.4Ha over three streets. Government aspirations for a north-south freeway saw the Government acquire the Brompton site during the 1970's and under negotiations with the Government the company purchased its present 4.29Ha site at Regency Park in 1985.
A pre-fabricated roof truss line was introduced into the business in 1990 and over the past two decades has developed into the core product for the business. The pre-fabricated product range has been extended to include a floor truss line. Along with a range of timber and ancillary hardware products, Footersville now offers a complete first and second fix service for timber construction projects. The business mainly supplies the domestic and commercial building market through established builders and owner-builders, with a small trade for the home handyman.
Footersville has been a leader in the industry in many ways, with the latest computer driven plant, safety standards and value adding services. Recently added is an estimating service to complement the prefab division of the company and provide a complete service to customers, from council application through to first fix construction.
