Father and son duo, Bob Louk and John Louk, started working on the design of a unique treestand in 1984. Following seven years of trial and error the family team indeed invented an improved product and, in 1990, applied for a US Patent. As they founded the original treestand company and tooled up to manufacture their first treestands for retail, the two obviously needed a catchy name. John wanted to portray the love he had for his father so the legendary ďOL'MANĒ was born. That first year Bob and John built and sold 100 units from a small garage in their backyard.
In 1995 OLíMAN Treestands moved the corporate office to Hattiesburg, MS and began to earn a respectable market share in the south. By 1999 the company built and sold over 70,000 units. By the summer of 1998 OLíMAN had expanded into 43 states and at the 1998 Shot Show in December, the company collected Field & Stream magazineís ďThe Best of The BestĒ award for their AirElite series.
In 2008 a group of investors with serious hunting experience recognized OLíMANís rich history, loyal customer base and premier product design as an excellent opportunity to resurrect one of the hunting industries favorite brands ó now as OLíMAN Outdoors located in Tallahassee, FL.
