The AMF Bowling Co. is traditional bowling at its best. Founded in New York in 1900, the company originally rose to prominence as a manufacturer of industrial equipment under the name American Machine and Foundry. The company transitioned into the bowling business during the middle of the 20th century in its attempt to perfect the automated pinspotter, which it debuted to the world in 1946.
In the decades since, the AMF Bowling Co. (or “AMF”) has grown to become the leading destination for serious and casual bowlers alike, bringing the sport to millions. In 2013, the company merged with Bowlmor Lanes, a pioneer in the arena of innovative, upscale bowling lounges, to form Bowlmor AMF—the world leader in recreational bowling.
