History

Columbia Industrial Products (CIP) is a manufacturer and global supplier of custom composite bearing materials. In 1998, after 14 years in the plastics industry, founder Stephen Phillips opened the doors to CIP in Eugene, Oregon and began manufacturing composite bearing materials. For years customers had requested textile reinforced composites to provide high strength, low coefficient of friction, easy machine ability, and custom sizes with fast deliveries. Recognizing this market demand for higher quality products and service, Mr. Phillips established an experienced management team, skilled production crew, and worked with key suppliers to introduce superior composite products. CIP is proud to offer these solutions, along with personalized customer support to its clients, serving a broad range of industries around the world.
