With its core mission of providing quality yet inexpensive, protection for a truck's bed, BAK Industries has played a prolific role in the tonneau cover industry for the past two decades. Its emphasis on strength and durability has molded this brand into one of the most respected and well-known names when it comes to holistic truck bedliner protection.
From Simple Manufacturing to Large Scale Product Innovation
BAK Industries traces its roots to the late 1980s. It was founded by Julian and Ivan Maimin in Los Angeles, California to manufacture inexpensive bedliners that can help protect the back of a pickup truck. But far from its humble beginnings, BAK Industries is now well on its way to becoming the benchmark for new, creative, and exciting auto products. With its innovative modular mold designs, the facility that Julian and Ivan built has become an institution for bedliners and tonneau covers that have never been seen or heard before.
From Local Wholesale to Worldwide Exports
Aside from its local reputation, BAK Industries is also known worldwide as a trusted manufacturer of original equipment and aftermarket bedliners. Ever since the mid-1990s, BAK Industries was already on the forefront of global market expansion. They weren’t only the first company to produce export-ready bedliners, but they also began shipping these products to over 35 countries by the end of the decade. Two decades later, BAK Industries continues to export quality truck accessories worldwide, with distribution points in all 50 states of the USA as well as Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East.
