Columbia Machine started out as a small machine shop in 1937 by an ambitious 23-year-old named Fred Neth, Sr. In the early 1960s, Columbia Machine hosted an open house and during a tour of the plant, the owner of Lucky Brewery in Vancouver saw a machine stacking concrete blocks on a pallet.

Intrigued, he asked us if Columbia could apply the same principle to stacking cases of beer onto a pallet. Columbia accepted the challenge, engineering and building the industry's first floor-level case palletizer. This innovative new machine was the start of a new manufacturing division at Columbia, the Palletizer Division.

Today, continuing as a privately held company, still managed by the Neth family, Columbia continues to thrive with a focused customer first commitment and an aggressive research and product development program.

Columbia manufactures inline high speed, high-level, floor-level and robotic palletizers, load transfer stations and systems integration. Columbia features flexible, upgradeable designs to speeds over 200 cases per minute with over 4,000 palletizers in the industry.
