CONGRATULATIONS to Saskatoon Bag & Case on 40 Years in Business in Saskatoon!

We all love a good local 'rags to riches' story - and Saskatoon Bag & Case's business story is just that - the company began in a humble garage and has flourished into a thriving business. Trusted Saskatoon Custom Bag and Case Experts Saskatoon Bag & Case (SBC) is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2024, a testament to the team's resilience, adaptability, and unwavering commitment to quality. 

Celebrating 40 Years of Saskatoon Bag & Case: A Local Story of Innovation and Dedication

Originally founded out of a garage, SBC's journey exemplifies entrepreneurial spirit. When they secured a building on St George Avenue, its potential began to unfold. Over the years, the business changed hands a few times until Trevor Sonstelie took the reins a decade ago, becoming the sole proprietor.

Trevor's background in food sales at Loblaw's might seem worlds away from the bag and case industry, but fate had other plans. His aspiration to start a food wholesaling business took an unexpected turn when a serendipitous suggestion led him to SBC. With his expertise as a musician and a keen understanding of the need for protective cases, Trevor found himself drawn to the business.

SBC- A Labor of Love

For Trevor, SBC is more than just a business—it's a labor of love. He describes it as a good, honest enterprise that fulfills a crucial need in the community. What sets them apart is their commitment to creativity and problem-solving, especially in custom design work. From hockey bags to music cases and even cadaver cases for scientific research, Saskatoon Bag & Case caters to a diverse clientele with precision and care.

What keeps Trevor and his team engaged is the constant challenge that each project presents. Whether crafting custom solutions or supporting local businesses with specialized needs, they thrive on the opportunity to innovate and exceed expectations.

Over the years, SBC has witnessed shifts in industries and consumer demands. While initially focused on textiles and military products, the company evolved with the times, embracing new markets such as music, hunting, and custom cases. This adaptability has been instrumental in ensuring the company's longevity and relevance in a competitive landscape.

The key to Saskatoon Bag & Case's success is its diverse customer base, which spans local businesses and international entities. Their reach knows no bounds, from large corporations to crown corporations, musicians to law enforcement agencies. Its reputation for quality craftsmanship and personalized service has garnered clients from across the globe, including destinations as far-flung as Spain, Florida, and even the Mayo Clinic.

Each Bag & Case Is Truly A Team Effort

Behind every custom case and innovative design stands a dedicated team of individuals who share Trevor's passion and vision. With ten staff members, including Trevor and his wife, SBC operates like a tight-knit family. Many of its employees have been with the company for over a decade, a testament to the supportive work environment and a strong sense of camaraderie.

As Saskatoon Bag & Case celebrates its 40th anniversary, Trevor looks back with gratitude for his loyal staff, supportive customers, and endless opportunities for growth and fulfillment that his business provides. For him, the journey has been nothing short of extraordinary—a testament to the power of perseverance, creativity, and the human spirit. As he looks towards the future, one thing remains certain: the legacy of innovation and dedication will continue to define Saskatoon Bag & Case's success for future generations.

The Trusted Saskatoon team wishes the Saskatoon Bag & Case team all the best in their future endeavours. Our sister company, Trusted Marketing Services, designed the 40th Anniversary logo and presented it as a gift to Trevor! We are so grateful we get to work with and promote great local companies like Saskatoon Bag & Case!
