“Some of our customers had been duped by other suppliers into buying cheap bags,” says Roy Shields, president of BankSupplies. “Customers found that those cheap bags were breaking and actually spilling their contents. That’s when we realized that we needed to clearly identify our bags with our own brand. This way customers know what they can trust.”
In internal company tests, Fort Knox Deposit Bags™ survived an eight foot drop when stuffed full of cash and coin. The Fort Knox Handled Coin Bag™ survived a six-foot drop when filled with 50 lbs of pennies. It also survived being dragged behind a pickup truck for more than 20 feet.
“When we say these are the toughest deposit bags you’ll ever need, we mean it,” Shields says. “You don’t want to buy bags that will break, but you also don’t want to waste money on bells and whistles that you don’t need. By using precise engineering we’re able to provide the right bags at the right price.”
Managers and tellers can request a free Fort Knox Deposit Bags™ Sampler Pack, according to Rusty Wigal, sales manager for BankSupplies. The free sampler includes two samples of nine different bags. “It’s a good introduction to this line of deposit bags,” says Wigal. “You have a chance to try out each bag. If you like it, you then have another one to make sure that you order the correct bag.”
The line of bags includes clear and opaque deposit bags, the handled coin bag, currency packaging bags and top/bottom universal transaction bags.
