Established in 1885 as a privately held cotton-factoring business in Columbus, Georgia, W.C. Bradley Co. has become one of the oldest and most respected companies in the region. The company operates a diverse range of businesses, including Char-Broil (www.charbroil.com), Zebco (www.zebcobrands.com) and Lamplight (www.tikibrand.com). While the company has been a major investor and developer in real estate for more than 100 years, W.C. Bradley Co. Real Estate, LLC was formed in 1996 to market W.C. Bradley Co. properties and to provide full-service brokerage to the Columbus/Phenix City area. The division manages close to $80 million in assets. Today, more than 125 years later, the W.C. Bradley Co. continues to be privately held and operates from its original location, in the heart of Uptown, Columbus, overlooking the Chattahoochee River.
