Grizzly Tools – The Grizzly Company & Grizzly Woodworking Tools

Grizzly Tools or more officially known as Grizzly Industrial started production in 1983 and has since grown into a woodworking and metal working tool and accessories giant in the USA. Today Grizzly Industrial owns huge warehouses, with almost a million square feet of warehouse space, from where it ships directly to the customer, cutting out the dealer network. Grizzly claims that it ships 99% of all orders the same day.

Today Grizzly Industrial falls under the watchful eyes of Shiraz Balolia. Shiraz Balolia has been the President of Cascade Tools Inc., Bellingham, WA and Woodstock International Inc., Bellingham, WA since 1989. Mr. Balolia is the Founder of Grizzly Industrial, Inc., and serves as its President. He has been with Grizzly since 1983.

The company started from humble beginnings when Shiraz run his own workshops and realized that the only tools he can get were the very expensive all American made tools. This presented him with an opportunity to import lower-priced machines to enter the market. Grizzly Industrial’s started operations in Bellingham, Washington, with one employee, who ran the computer. Shiraz did everything else from unloading containers, accounting, marketing, answering phones, packing boxes, mailing catalogs, servicing machines to janitorial work. The grizzly company grew steadily over the following years, adding more staff as it was going. In 2013 Grizzly Industries employ in excess of 300 people in the United States and another 15 or so at Grizzly’s overseas offices.

Grizzly today is a true giant in the tool supply business. To get a feel for the scale of the operations have a look at the video of the Springfield, MO Showroom and the wide range of Grizzly tools on display.
