Since 1985, Bison has built its reputation in the sports equipment market as an innovator. Player safety and equipment durability are required features in all equipment designed for official competition, parks and recreation and residential markets.
Initially known in the industry as a basketball equipment supplier, Bison expanded its volleyball line in 1999 with the purchase of Centerline Volleyball. Today Bison basketball and volleyball equipment are official products of the National High School Federation, the national governing body of all high school sports.
In the last few years, largely at the request of our 1200 dealers nationwide, Bison has added soccer goals and accessories and football goal posts to its offering.
Centrally located in Lincoln Nebraska, Bison manufacturing and warehouse facility covers over 100,000 square feet. Over 95% of all product is shipped from available inventory as our finished goods warehouse is kept full so that we ship your order when you need it.
Bison knows that excellent customer service is the lifeblood of any sales organization. Our knowledgeable sales staff is not just order takers but problem solvers with the friendly style that the Midwest is known for.
Bison has been privately owned since its beginning and is one of a family of four manufacturing companies that manufacture and market products in a diverse range of industries including automotive, agricultural, industrial automation, turf maintenance, recreational vehicle, aviation, advertising and consumer products. Since 1974, this IMSCORP family of companies has shared expertise and resources to make each division a leader in its respective industry.
Onsite ownership has been key to the success of Bison. Decision making regarding product development, marketing and all facets of business are made with an eye on long-term goals, not short term financial gain common with publicly traded, venture capital controlled and absentee owner businesses. Entrepreneurism is alive and well at Bison and its sister companies.
Whether you are an athletic director, a coach, facility administrator, equipment manager or a homeowner, you can continue to rely on Bison to provide safe, durable, innovative and on time products to fit your sports equipment needs.
MADE IN USA is more than a slogan, it's reality at Bison. In an era where a high percentage of sporting goods equipment is manufactured “offshore”, Bison continues to offer competitively priced, superior quality equipment that provides jobs to over 100 hardworking Americans. We are proud to be able to say that over 95% of our sales are products that are manufactured by Bison in America. Shouldn't American football and games invented at YMCAs in the USA be played on American made equipment?
Bison strives to bring you the products that you need to make your facility work. Field line markers, bleachers and benches, scoring tables and sports flooring are just a few of the products available from Bison and its affiliated companies that compliment our basketball, volleyball, soccer and football goals and equipment.
