When Bold Ivy was first created, we had a simple mission: make the best canoe and kayak stabilizer. As time went on, our mission evolved. It’s not good enough to make a great product, we also need to be a great company. We need to care about the environment. We need to care about our employees. But most importantly, we need to care about our customers. Everyday, we do all of those things.
make the best canoe stabilizer
When we set out to create Bold Ivy, we knew there were other canoe stabilizers on the market. With most clever ideas, you soon find out that someone already thought of it. But what we found in our research were floats that needed to be inflated and deflated, DIY projects that were using flimsy PVC pipes, and overall poor and cheap craftsmanship. We knew we wanted a better canoe stabilizer. We wanted to create the best canoe stabilizer. So we thought of everything. We cut no corners, made no exceptions, and sought out to create the best canoe and kayak stabilizer on the market.
succeed where others fall short
Bold Ivy found success because we took a simple idea – one that has been around for thousands of years – and made it better. Other canoe stabilizers that feature inflatable floats aren’t a failure, but they just aren’t as easy – they aren’t as convenient – and they don’t have the quality that Bold Ivy has built its reputation on. We’ve built a brand, and our mission, on manufacturing quality canoe and kayak stabilizers that will last from generation to generation.
treat our customers with compassion
Having a mission without mentioning customers doesn’t seem right. Without happy customers, no business will be successful. And we do what we do because we want to enlighten the experiences that our customers have while canoeing or kayaking – period.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. Read the many reviews our customers have submitted.
help dealers be successful
We’ve worked with lousy suppliers – suppliers that don’t communicate, charge ridiculous fees, and never seem to ship on time. We never want to treat our dealers that way – and we don’t.
Bold Ivy recognizes that if our dealers are successful, we are successful. And that’s why Bold Ivy offers extremely generous wholesale prices and lightning fast shipping.
seek happiness over growth
Bold Ivy wants to make sure that our employees are valued. We work hard, but we play harder. We’ve all had the 8-5 desk jobs with crummy bosses who care more about growth and sales than they do the livelihoods of their employees. That’s why Bold Ivy offers unlimited vacation days, mental health days, company retreats, and we strive to bring positivity to every single day.
Our philosophy from the beginning was to care about our customers. Without them, we can’t do what we love to do – and that’s to run a business that values hard work, compassion, and humanity. And finally, we care about our employees. Despite how hard our employees work, we still realize that there’s much more to life than a 9-5 job. We want them to enjoy life as much as they do their work.
