Founder David is a medal-winning pole-vaulter, launching himself to glory at the World Masters Games in 2017 – “the Olympics for older people,” he laughs.
In search of a viable and environmentally sustainable business, David discovered bamboo back in 2006. He started out running the business from his garage; today, BAM has swelled to a team of 40. Despite this growth, the core values remain the same. “The environment is our highest priority,” David reasserts. “It’s what we got into business for in the first place.”
