It gives me great pleasure to be able to write this letter of recommendation for both Amstel Manufacturing/McKinlay Doors. Buttcon Limited has been fortunate to have a good working relationship with the above mentioned firms, both from cooperation on our construction sites and the excellent performing product that Amstel/McKinlay manufacture and install.

These comments and recommendations come from both our site supervisors and that of our clients who have used the Amstel/McKinlay products.

I would also like to thank Amstel/McKinlay for affording us their attention and time when it is necessary for Buttcon to provide budget information for our clients.

Amstel/McKinlay Doors have always been there to assist us and we have found that their involvement has always met our expectations. I would have no hesitation to recommend Amstel/McKinlay for any endeavors they wish to seek and I would be most pleased to give a verbal recommendation should you so wish.

Barrie Fordham,
Senior Vice President


Thank you for your support of the project schedule and providing material on time and as promised, all or the above referenced project. I know that this was a tremendous effort, on your part, to collect the necessary materials and qualified people to complete this mammoth material requirement. We wanted you to know that you and your Company provided everything that you promised, which I might add is unusual in today's business world to find companies such as yours.

CIANBRO CORPORATION and the Owner both have communicated their acceptance of your product as a quality fabrication and would not hesitate to get your company involved in another similar project if one should occur. Everything from the field verification of dimensions to the value engineering your company provided certainly proved beneficial to the quality and integrity of the cladding and on-time delivery.

Again, thank you for the help in completion of this project. Should an opportunity arise for your company to manufacture this material for another project we would be very much interested in providing you with an installation price. Keep up to quality of workmanship and promises you provided to us and you will always be successful.

Very truly yours,

Stanton J. Martin,
Purchasing Manager


This letter is to confirm that Amstel Manufacturing is the exclusive and preferred supplier of security grilles for our locations in Canada.

For 14 years they have serviced the needs of over 300 new store buildouts.  Their customer service, attention to detail, excellent pricing and timely delivery make them the ideal vendor to develop a long term partnership with.

It is our understanding that Amstel has chosen to work through Cornell Storefronts in an attempt to be your provider in the United States.

Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Amstel who will provide you with a superior product and first rate service.

We are writing to express our opinion of McKinlay Door Sales / Amstel Manufacturing qualifications for future projects.

My personal experience with McKinlay Door Sales / Amstel Manufacturing, is with the Oakville and Oshawa Ice Sports Centres.  The approximate value of these projects were $80,000.00.

We found the staff of McKinlay Door Sales / Amstel Manufacturing to be very co-operative and their whole organization very capable of completing a project of this type.

Dineen Construction as a group is very satisfied with McKinlay Door Sales / Amstel Manufacturing, on many past projects at the Hospital for Sick Children, etc.  and we would welcome the opportunity to work with them on future projects.

Yours truly,

W.E. Love, P.Eng.
Vice-President, Ontario Division
