to Tallman Ladders
Manufacturers of Quality Orchard Ladders.
The first production run of TALLMAN LADDERS
came out in March of 1954. In 1957, Bob Sr. purchased a
larger ranch and brother Bill continued to run the ladder
business until retirement in December of 1974. Bill sold
the business to Bob Sr.'s son, also named Bob. Bob had worked
with his father and uncle from the start, including ladder
No. 1 in 1953.
Bob Tallman continues to run the business today. Although
still a small family business, almost every year has seen
moderate growth in the size of the company. Exporting sales
have continued to grow, with sales now reaching many countries.
