Bigfoot Systems® are pre-engineered footing forms used as pier footings with construction tubes. Manufactured from recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Bigfoot can be used in all situations where pier footings are required. Bigfoot is used not only as a pier footing but also acts as an anchor to prevent uplift in areas subject to high-velocity winds. Because of this, our product has a superior advantage in areas subject to hurricanes. Other important features of Bigfoot Systems® Footing Forms: Easy one-day installation, saving time, money and aggravation. Traditional wooden form boxes can take up to three days to install. Engineered design offers footings with greatly increased stability, safety and convenience. Bigfoot’s advantage rests with its shape – a bell shaped footing with a round base – which uses the natural laws of physics to evenly distribute the entire load’s weight, solidly securing the footing to the earth, something a square footing just cannot do.

IAPMO Promotes Huisken, Morris to Senior Vice President

Ontario, Calif. (Jan. 11, 2016) — The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), in recognition of their work integral to The IAPMO Group’s unprecedented growth over the past decade, has promoted Duane Huisken to Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications and Mitchell Morris to Senior Vice President of Information Technology, IAPMO CEO GP Russ Chaney announced.

“Duane and Mitch oversee two essential aspects of The IAPMO Group’s shared services, and they have worked tirelessly to support all of our global services from both an internal perspective and for our members and clients,” Chaney said.

Huisken joined IAPMO in 2007, having previously performed marketing, sales, and product development for such manufacturing giants as Lafarge, James Hardie, and Oldcastle.

One of his major initiatives has been the development of unique messaging for each facet of The IAPMO Group, distinguishing the services and benefits each business unit offers while simultaneously promoting synergies between them.  

“One size does not fit all,” Huisken said. “Messages need to be specifically relevant to an audience in order to resonate within it.”  

IAPMO also beefed up its social media presence at Huisken’s direction, with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn forums, and YouTube all being utilized to promote the association’s work.  

Morris also came to IAPMO in 2007 after leading Strategic Point, LLC, a provider of technical and operational strategy consulting services, as Managing Partner. Prior to that he managed worldwide IT operations for an internationally branded architectural firm.  

During his tenure with IAPMO, Morris has overseen technical infrastructure and application development capabilities that have positioned the organization to experience significant technological advancement.

“I’ve enjoyed leading and implementing the technology strategy at The IAPMO Group over the last eight years,” Morris said, “and am looking forward to being even more deeply involved in our continued success going forward.”
