Chris Sutherland along with his Father Robert, founded Sutco Contracting LTD in 1995 with one logging truck and vision of maintaining a family oriented business while becoming the transportation specialists for their customers. From those humble beginnings, and armed with determination, a strong work ethic, and an ability to foresee the future demands of a growing customer base, Sutco quickly expanded. General freight, heavy haul, wood residual hauling and freight brokering are now the mainstays of Sutco. However, as the transportation needs of Sutco’s customers evolve they continue to seek new and better ways to maintain their commitment to being transportation specialists.
Sutco remains family owned and operated, and proudly serves all of North America using the same determination, values, and work ethic it was founded on 20 years ago. Sutco continues to maintain its head office in Salmo, BC with their sales department and highway division located in West Kelowna, and additional terminals in both Chilliwack, and Creston, BC. Sutco’s management team prides itself on providing a friendly and safe work environment for all Sutco employees and realizes its employees are by far its biggest and most crucial asset needed for continued success.
