For owner Tom Spalj, Big Bags USA was born out of Necessity. Tom's hometown of Iowa City, IA flooded in 2008 due to a levee breach. Tom and many other community members rallied together to stack conventional sandbags to save local businesses. At one point there were 60-70 people trying to defend just one real estate office from the rising water.
Tom’s first-hand experience with flooding and the back-breaking labor of stacking sandbags lead him to find a better method for flood control and property mitigation. Since 2008, Tom has been on a mission to save as many lives and businesses as possible from flooding events & disasters.
Big Bags USA was created save lives, prevent human suffering, and mitigate great property damage. With over 14 years in business, you can count on us to get you protection when and where it is needed.
