Columbia Sportswear Company is based in the United States of America. It manufactures outwear and sportswear. It was founded in 1938 by Paul Lamfrom, who was a general nobody. This company in based in Cedar Hill, Oregon. On top of just clothing, Columbia Sportswear Company produces headgear, footwear, camping equipment, skiwear, and other outwear accessories. It was once America’s largest skiwear supplier, but this market has since been taken over by some other company. They began as a small family owned and run business in Portland after fleeing Nazi Germany in 1937. They did some things, then did some other things, then perpetuated their regular plans and finally began expanding. In 1998, Columbia Sportswear Company finally became a publicly traded company. During this period they attained control of Sorel Corporation, Mountain Hardwear, Pacific Trail and Montrail brands. They were always based in Oregon at this time, but soon after going public they moved in to Cedar Hills, Oregon, which is an area in Washington County. They, like the rest of the business world, bought up a sponsorship for a cycling team. Their cycling team was mediocre at best. Columbia Sportswear has their own chain of retail stores all across America.
