CBT Company Named a Semi-Finalist as the best in Family and Private Business.

CBT company is proud to announce the recognition as a Semi-Finalist for the 18th Annual, 2017 Goering Center Family & Private Business Awards.

CBT was founded in Cincinnati in 1921 as a small belting shop that developed custom, made-to-order belts for area manufacturers.

Despite the immense growth, CBT has always stayed true to our core values and our Cincinnati roots. Learn more about CBT’s history here.
