The C.L. Bailey Co., a division of CLB Assets LLC, was founded in the 1990’s by the father and son team of Charles and Chuck Bailey, veterans of the billiards industry. In 2001, after experiencing great success in manufacturing pool tables, the Bailey’s were joined by another father and son team, Jackson and Shine Lee, and started a billiards accessories and game room furniture division called The Level Best. The Level Best quickly became one of the home recreation industry’s largest billiard accessory and game room furniture suppliers, due to the Lees’ ability to source quality products from Asia at competitive prices. In 2004, the Bailey’s and Lee’s were joined by Curt Cook, who previously served as Sales Manager for AMF Billiards and Games.
In early 2007, The C.L. Bailey Co. was acquired by Armand Billiards Group, part of Armand Capital Group, which also owned Belgium based Saluc SA, maker of the famous Aramith billiard balls.
During 2010, a team lead by Charles Bailey, Chuck Bailey, Shine Lee, Curt Cook and Scott Hickman repurchased certain assets of The C.L. Bailey Co. Today, CLB Assets LLC, doing business as The C.L. Bailey Co., continues as a leading supplier of quality home recreation products to specialty retailers throughout North America, under the trade brands C.L. Bailey pool tables, Level Best billiard accessories, Level Best game room furniture, Winslow game room furniture, and Velocity worsted billiard cloth.
