Grizzly Celebrates 30 Years in Business

Happy 30th anniversary (a month or so in advance) to Grizzly Industrial. The company was founded in 1983 by Shiraz Balolia – who has a fascinating and award-winning hobby of Olympic proportions (read more about him here).

To celebrate, the company is releasing a special 30th-anniversary catalog – 764 pages of woodworking and metalworking machinery; you can request your copy at Grizzly.com or by calling 800-523-4777.

In a press release, Balolia (who is still the president and CEO of the Bellingham, Wash.-based company), said, “A lot has changed over the last 30 years. Many machinery brands that were around 10 or 20 years ago have completely disappeared. Others have changed ownership, some multiple times, losing their core values and commitment to customers along the way.

“Meanwhile, Grizzly has become the brand name for machines and has never been more stable or more committed to our loyal customers.”

The entire press release can be downloaded below.
