Sometimes it takes two wishes to build a dream. This dream was started with the love of hockey and the urge for complete independence. From humble beginnings in a little pro shop, two friends from college grabbed their winning combination and took off.
Starting after university in 1985, best friends John Calderone and Mark Stefanopoulos began working in local pro shops offering services for sharpening skates and selling hockey equipment. Business was promising but in 1989 after noticing the dramatic demise of sales during the summer seasons, they took their business and decided it needed to be altered into something that could provide a stable amount of work year long.
As the months and years moved on, new machines were purchased, employees were hired and CSG became a strong competitor in the embroidery business. Moving offices once again to a larger and more functional factory, expanding the machinery to 16 embroidery machines was now a necessity to serve new clients and be able to embroider on caps, apparel, golf bags and even umbrellas; there was nothing that they couldn’t do.
During the year of 2001, business was stable yet not expanding. A strong demise in the local cap industry had begun from the rise of products from China. The new techniques and prices were unattainable for anyone in Canada to compete with. This left no choice for CSG but to once again shift gears and expand the manufacturing side into a full service department creating sports uniforms.
