Championship Billiards: Engineered Excellence in Billiards


D & R Industries, Inc. began in 1963 due to Dennis Ruber's and Richard Utanoff's vision (hence the name D & R). With nothing more than a telephone, working out of Richard's mother's bedroom in a small apartment in Chicago, Dennis and Richard began an amusement industry parts distribution business.

Through the years, D & R Industries, Inc. underwent many changes and expanded into various recreation-oriented businesses but found its niche within the billiard industry. After distributing billiard fabrics (along with other billiard supplies) for more than 25 years, Dennis Ruber saw a need for affordable, high-quality ones.

The decision was to switch from a billiard parts distribution business to a manufacturer of high-quality billiard fabrics. A team of engineers, textile experts, and old-time billiard people worked together to develop what is now known as the "Championship Line" of billiard fabrics. Manufacturing billiard fabrics since 1990, Championship now sells more billiard fabric than all of its major competitors combined.

The tremendous success of Championship Billiard Fabrics confirmed the belief that our industry wants and needs high-quality products at affordable prices. Our experts developed a line of high-quality, affordable billiard cushions with that basic premise in mind.

Engineers and experts at Championship have been working hard over the last five years to develop the finest billiard cushion rubber in the industry. All their hard work has paid off! Championship, as of 2002, is now a supplier of the most accurate billiard cushion rubber ever made for the billiard industry. Our testing has clearly shown that the accuracy of this product is unmatched. Though in its infancy, Championship's cushion rubber can already be found on the tables of many of today's major billiard table manufacturers.
