Huk TV Mounts is a leading innovator in dorm-room television- and monitor-mounting technology. With the introduction of the patented and award-winning Huk TV Bracket, television mounting is now simple and safe. The company has teamed up with the nation's largest college bookstore distribution company, making Huk available to the U.S. and Canadian markets. The company has taken the next step in partnering with the largest innovative point-of-care provider, Outcome Health. Huk now manufactures custom hardware used in over 25,000 medical facilities around the U.S. The company's mission is to create high-quality products that will make a positive impact on people's lives.
Huk was bootstrapped with profits its founder, Sam Lukach, made from a summer lawn-mowing service. Lukach first invested $5,000 in materials to create various prototypes. Since then, Lukach created the first batch of Huk TV brackets, which soon sold out on Amazon and on his own e-commerce website. Today, the company has generated $1 million in revenue and has numerous investments. Future launches include wall mounts, tablet stands, and education software.
