The first major innovation in the manufacturing of bowling balls occurred in 1960 when Columbia Industries Inc. successfully utilized polyester resin for manufacturing the Columbia 300 bowling ball. At that time, Columbia was a fledgling corporation headquartered in Ephrata, Washington, near the famed Columbia River. Its production capacity was about 40 balls per day. The company has come a long way in the intervening years. Columbia 300, Inc. moved to San Antonio, Texas and now is based out of Hopkinsville, Kentucky.
Columbia 300 has a long and storied history. Each step within that history has been filled with great performing, quality made products coming from each of our three manufacturing facilities. The latest move to Ebonite International has enhanced the strength build on the history of this champion brand.
