It all began in 1845. John Brunswick had come to America from Switzerland’s Rhine Valley. A carriage-maker by trade, he opened a shop on September 15, 1845, in Cincinnati, where he was introduced to billiards. A master woodworker, Brunswick began to make his own tables, forming a Company that is now approaching 200 years in business.
Since that time, Brunswick has become an established American institution. Agile and resilient, Brunswick has seen the American Civil War, two world wars, dozens of U.S. Presidents and the booms and busts of the American economy.
Brunswick, the world’s leader in recreational boats, marine engines and marine parts and accessories, is one of the longest continually publicly-traded companies on the New York Stock Exchange.
