THE COMPANY

We are the largest bowling products distributor in Canada. We do not only have a distribution center, we also have one pro shop ready to serve you for all your personal bowling needs. At Buffa, we are distributor of the best brands in the world of bowling.

A little bit about our story...
In 1980, Frank Buffa replied to the demand by opening one of the first bowling pro shops in Quebec in the basement of his house. By partnering up with some of the best ball drillers of his time, he quickly became the pro shop of choice for many bowlers from across the province. In 1991, “Boutique de Quilles Buffa” moved to a new bowling centre in Laval, the Centre de Quilles 440. By doing so, the pro shop became an ideal destination for league players. A few years later, in 1995, Buffa distribution center was born. The expansion of it continued growing during the following years.

In 2003, we introduced the first training center for bowling in Canada: The Studio Buffa. In 2005, Buffa Distribution became an official re-seller and installer of QubicaAMF’s Capital Equipment products to meet the growing demand for modernization needs of bowling centers. From 2012 to 2015, Buffa Distribution acquired three main competitors: Maurice Boyer Pro Shop, Bowling Sales of Canada and the Bowling division of Sanders.

Today we have over 850 accounts and we have been distributing bowling products in nearly a dozen countries. Buffa Distribution is the leading supplier and sponsor of the CTF for the Canadian Team Trials and the FQQ and Provincial Junior Championships in association with Kegel.

The company employs 24 employees who are all passionate about the sport of bowling and who are themselves experts in their field. The company is an active member of the following associations: East Chamber of Commerce of Montreal Island, Prevention Mutual Group NovoSST Council and AGAPQ. As well as in the field of bowling: BBIA, IBPSIA, USBC Bowl Canada, CTF and FQQ.
