What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
Ohio is actually one of the top states for organized baseball. But it is Ohio’s central location that logistically makes it an excellent gateway point to our entire domestic market. No domestic location is more than four shipping days away. In addition, access to raw materials is convenient.
Description of business:
The Phoenix Bat Company is a specialized wooden bat creator and manufacturer. Located just outside of Columbus, Ohio, the company combines premium grade maple and ash woods with the most advanced, bat making machine in the industry.
In the mid ‘90s, Phoenix Bats' founder was earning his living restoring old houses. During his down time he started playing 19th century baseball for the Ohio Historical Society. Soon the first request to make wooden baseball bats typical of the 1860’s rolled in. As word and interest spread, this project turned into to a full-time business. In 1996, Phoenix Bat Company was launched. Today, Phoenix Bats produces wooden baseball bats out of a state of the art, custom bat manufacturing shop in Plain City, on Columbus’ northwest side.
