From 1922 onward, Escalade Inc. has striven to expand and progress. Since its beginning as a shoe manufacturer, this company has completed intelligent, successful mergers and acquisitions all along the way. This is what makes a small, determined team into a big, dynamic one. Over the decades, these people have demonstrated that they have the kind of grit and integrity it takes to make it through the Great Depression, several wars and the trampoline of global economics. Though the recent downturn in the economy affected its stock in 2008, they will undoubtedly survive and continue to provide us with the little things we need to play seriously, like Swingline staplers and Atomic hockey games.

Escalade Inc. is publicly traded under the symbol of ESCA, on NASDAQ.
