Started in 1983 by Shiraz Balolia, Grizzly Industrial has quickly grown to be one of the largest woodworking and metalworking machinery and tool companies in the United States and Canada.

Grizzly attributes much of its success over the last 30 years to its ability to keep prices low by avoiding the middleman and selling directly to the end-user—while at the same time providing customers with high quality machines with excellent owner's manuals, world-class service and support, and a solid commitment to offering replacement parts for many years down the road.

“A lot has changed over the last 30 years,” said Mr. Balolia, who still actively presides over Grizzly as its President and CEO. “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,” Mr. Balolia said, smiling, "Grizzly has become THE brand name for machines and has never been more stable or more committed to our loyal customers. As word of mouth travels incredibly fast these days, our list of new customers is growing like never before. The tough economic times forced many consumers to be a lot more careful with how they spend their money—to shop around more and make sure they get the best return on their investment. That's why so many people ultimately decide on Grizzly—both in booming times as well as recessionary times."

"When you buy from Grizzly, you get a package that you just can't find anywhere else. Our machines are built to very high standards and carefully inspected by our staff before they leave the factory. We back up everything we sell with the best customer service and tech support in the industry, and our prices are some of the lowest you'll find.”

“Grizzly customers can also get replacement parts for their machines, often shipped out the same day they're ordered. Most people don't appreciate this until their machine breaks down. Parts is something we've been committed to since day one, and we easily have over one million parts in stock at any given time. Our customers can buy with complete confidence."
