Brunswick Shuffleboards Brand Comparison

Brunswick Shuffleboards

 

Manufacturing Location:

Brunswick Corporate location is in Illinois but all their pool tables, game tables and shuffleboard tables are manufactured using contract manufacturing with the majority of the factories and labor located in China. Vietnam or Asia pacific countries.

Environmental & Social Economic Impact :

The main ingredient needed for the best shuffleboard play surface is North American Hard Maple the trees grow in Eastern United States. Brunswick states that their playfield is made with North American Maple wood with 1/4 Polymer resin surface. So if the product is contract manufacturing in Asia then this means that wood had to be transported thousands of miles to the other side of the planet. This is all done in order to take advantage of low labor cost when manufacturing the finished product which is distributed through a multi-tier marketing network.

In other words, money not put into the craftsmen who build the product or the raw materials. Instead, the money is used to develop a good brand story like the “Genuine American Brand” and you get marketing fluff like below…

If you look inside a Brunswick table you’ll see innovation after innovation. Every extra step we take in the building process ensures we achieve superior accuracy and consistency in our tables, so that you can achieve superior accuracy and consistency in your game. – brunswickbilliards.com

Where to purchase:

The Brunswick Shuffleboard tables are sold through a dealer network that can include both small mom-and-pop retailers as well as large chain and eCommerce retailers like Amazon, Costco, Wall Mart, Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware. What ends up happening is that you different middle-men who offer tables that are manufactured using contract manufactures marketed under the Brunswick Name. The cost is eventually passed on the the consumer.

You can also purchase directly from Brunswicks website but many times you’ll receive your table from a local distributor or reseller who carries the item you selected.
