Who is 27North?
In 1999, 27North, Inc founder and CEO, Pavel “Paul” Bosovik, and his family were granted refugee status in the United States after fleeing religious persecution in Ukraine. None of them spoke English when the family moved from Ukraine to the United States, but that did not stop their drive to be successful in the US. Their father took a job as an over the road truck driver, a job that did not require fluency in the English language, to provide for his family, while their mother helped her family adjust to their new life in America.
23 years later, the Bosovik family, consisting of mom, dad, and 11 brothers and sisters, still strive for success, charity and a strong sense of community.
Having seen his parents give up their livelihood in Ukraine to provide their children with opportunities they never had, Paul was determined to make their dreams for him come true.
At the tender age of 10, Paul began displaying his knack for business ventures. His entrepreneurial endeavors began when he started selling bookmarks to his classmates for a quarter apiece. It was clear, even back then, that Paul's ambition, tenacity and drive would set him up for success.
Leaving his bookmark salesman days behind him, he graduated from Mizzou in 2018 with a degree in business administration, and married his wife Nina. He dove headfirst into the residential construction industry; working as a superintendent for one of the Midwest's most prominent residential real estate developers.
After honing his skills in the construction industry, Paul knew a change of direction was in store. He witnessed first-hand how the lack of work options devastated the community, and immediately knew he had to take action.
In early 2017, the Bosovik family sold their first recreational vehicle to a young family outside of Rogersville, Missouri. During this transaction, it became clear that the local community was lacking RV repair options. In July of 2018, recognizing that need, the Bosoviks opened The RV Firm, which specializes in RV parts sales & service. Despite the pandemic, the company quickly rose to the top of the industry in under 2 years, and has been able to provide some of the fastest lead times in the industry. From that very first transaction to this day, the company has worked hard to provide professional, diligent and personalized customer care to everyone who purchases one of their vehicles.
With The RV Firm operations well-established, and the van life culture quickly growing in popularity, Paul opened 27North in November of 2021 with this vision in mind:
“Our vision at 27North is to connect as many people as possible to adventure and the great outdoors. We aim to transform their lives by designing and building affordable, practical, top-tier vans.
We continue to acknowledge and recognize the need for sturdy, well-built, environmentally-friendly, low-impact alternative housing options. In addition, we're here to assist and cater to the ever-expanding digital nomad and modern-day vagabond that exists in all of us.”
27North continues to expand their operations, quadrupling their manufacturing space and the number of employees in under 6 months to accommodate their thriving van conversion and e-commerce sales. Their customers expect high quality products and personalized customer service, as 27North looks to expand further into off-roading trucks, houseboats, and commercial vehicles.
At 27North, we understand the need for durable, well-built, low-impact, and environmentally friendly alternative housing options.
