Ballin was founded in 1946 by Charles (Chic) Balinsky. In our 65th year, we still remember the
days when Chic opened the Canadian factory and sold goods by horse and buggy. The original
building has been expanded several times, but it is still home to Ballin's main Canadian production
facility. Chic left a legacy of integrity that is still in every pair of Ballin pants today. Many of our
team of key executives were trained by and worked directly with him. Chic's son Joseph ran the
business through its major expansions in the 1980s and 90s. The US market became more key to
what was previously a Canadian focused firm. It was at this time that the business shifted to a
higher end product with the introduction of new technologies and a focus on the highest quality.
