Leadership through innovation

In fact, our entire reputation rests on the experienced skills and passion of our people, handed down through generations. These experience given over five generations made COLUMBUS to the leading innovator in the globe and map market. COLUMBUS presented its first illuminated globe in 1948. In 1965, COLUMBUS launched the first globe with a dual map system (two different maps when the globes are illuminated and non-illuminated). Many other innovations followed. Then, in 2005 COLUMBUS manufactured the largest globe in the world - measuring over 35 feet in diameter. COLUMBUS designed and built the globe for a historic museum. Still today COLUMBUS produces the world biggest globes in series. The MAGNUM globe line.
