The Summer 2017 edition of Global Ventures has been published. Benchmark Public Relations designed and laid out the issue, supplied editorial content and secured advertising.
Global Ventures is a quarterly business publication produced by the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP). The publication is aimed at increasing the public profile of STEP members while carrying a message to the provincial business community as well as a vast network of international contacts.
Here are some editorial highlights from the issue, which focused on manufacturing:
- Bridgeview Manufacturing: What were you doing when you were 13 years old? When you weren’t at school, you were likely hanging out with friends or involved in a recreation activity. Kevin Hruska was busy founding his company Bridgeview Manufacturing Inc. and establishing a farm in Gerald. Today, his farm and business are thriving. It’s a remarkable story about what you can achieve through hard work and dedication.
- Breina Docks: In the beginning, Edward Fagnou and his cousin simply wanted to get a dock built so they could maximize their experience at the lake. When the price wasn’t right, they decided to do it themselves. After building 100 feet in 2008, the neighbours began to take notice and a company was born. Based out of rural Saskatchewan in St. Brieux, these aren’t your typical mainline manufacturers.
- Robinson Residential: There have been lots of events put on to celebrate #Canada150, but Robinson Residential’s initiative might top them all. The company is designing a customized smaller home for each province and territory that reflects its identity. It started with a light house in Nova Scotia. When you learn more about this company, you realize it’s different by design.
