The Heritage of the Oakman Name
Oakman Aerospace, Inc. was co-founded by Stanley Oakman Kennedy, Jr. and Stanley Oakman Kennedy, Sr. in July 2012. While deciding on the name of the new company, they wanted to honor their family heritage and principles that had provided the opportunity and financial abilities to start the new company. The name “Oakman” has been part of the Kennedy family’s Scottish traditions for over one-hundred years solely in the United States and many hundreds of years throughout the World. The original Scottish Kennedy Clan’s Badge is the “Oak”, and therefore, if you are an “Oakman” you belong to the Kennedy Clan. The “Oak Tree” logo depicts the actual oak tree protecting the barn on the Kennedy Homestead and it is a symbol of the strength and trust necessary for success in all life’s endeavors. The guiding principles of Oakman Aerospace, Inc. (OAI) incorporate inclusiveness for our employees, customers, teammates, and suppliers.
