Our Company History
It’s been said necessity is the mother of all inventions. Well, Charlie Ziegler needed supplies for his game room. As a result, he created ZieglerWorld.
ZieglerWorld was founded by Charlie Ziegler in 2002. Charlie had purchased a shuffleboard table and had difficulties finding retailers who sold wax for the item. Shuffleboard wax retail prices were high and the selection was limited.
After an extensive search, Charlie decided to purchase directly from the manufacturer. The one drawback was that he had to buy in bulk. Stacked up, the boxes of wax were bigger than the shuffleboard table.
Charlie started selling the excessive wax on Ebay. Based on customer emails, he learned that there was a need for other shuffleboard products. Charlie decided to purchase bulk supplies, create an internet store and open a warehouse operation. This enabled him to pass on the savings to his customers.
Over the years, customers requested different game room products. Charlie and the ZieglerWorld team expanded their product offering to include Billiards, Darts, Cornhole, Bocce Ball, Tournament Charts and Air/Dome Hockey games. ZieglerWorld created laminated rule charts, Table Shuffleboard Pinsetters and Table Shuffleboard Weights in 16 colors.
In 2013, ZieglerWorld acquired Davis-Gorman Shuffleboard, the leading provided of Table Shuffleboard Supplies in the Northeast. Wendy Davis and Dick Gorman built their business by treating customers like family, which is the same tradition of excellence of ZieglerWorld. Davis-Gorman Shuffleboard served their customers for over 19 years and Wendy and Dick were deeply involved in Table Shuffleboard. Dick Gorman was awarded the "Art Cassata" award and the "Board Talk Pioneer Open" award in 2002, the prestigious "Sol Lipkin" award in 2003 and in was inducted into the National Shuffleboard Hall of Fame in 2006.
