A division of CLB Assets LLC · Since 1990s
The CL Bailey Co. was founded in 1999 in Marionville, Missouri by the father and son team, Charlie & Chuck Bailey. The very first table we engineered and built was the Addison Pool Table. As the company grew, we expanded our capacity with furniture finishing solid wood pool tables. A few years later, we established a separate company called The Level Best, to import and distribute billiard pool table accessory kits and game room furniture to their dealers across the country. Over the years, other seasoned veterans from the billiard industry joined the company and brought insight and experience to the team. Charlie and Chuck Bailey later retired, from the business, in 2012.
Over the past two decades, the core team continues to improve on their unique skills and bring the best customer service and the best value of quality products to our customers.
