“Bushman is a highly regarded outdoor clothing brand in Europe, and we think they will be able to expand rather quickly in the US market,” said Reinhard Seipp, general manager and chief operating officer of Meopta USA.  “They make top quality clothing and are as passionate about the functionality of each item as they are the look and feel.”

Bushman was founded in 1997 by Jindrich Melichar, an adventurer and world traveler.   Bushman currently operates 40 stores throughout Europe, and an e-commerce site, and hopes to increase distribution of its clothing line here in the United States.

“Bushman is not just about clothes,” said Melichar.  “The brand embodies a certain lifestyle that is reflected in all of our apparel – one of adventure.  Bushman products are suitable for a wide variety of hunts and other outdoor adventures in the US and abroad.”

Bushman makes clothing for men and women who understand the importance of purchasing quality apparel for their challenging adventures and the difference this can make on their journeys.

Bushman’s US-base of operations will be in the MeoHub professional office complex located in Meopta’s Long Island, NY headquarters.
