About American Tourister
American Tourister was founded in 1933 by Sol Koffler who's dream was to produce
a significantly more durable product than any competitor's in the same price range.
The company quickly established a reputation for producing quality luggage at a
reasonable price. It was also an innovator. American Tourister was the first luggage
manufacturer to make an all-vinyl case. Koffler also introduced moulded plastic
luggage before anyone else did.
In the 1950's, he improved the moulded plastic luggage manufacturing process to
create a nearly indestructible, low cost product. As time went on, the company
introduced padded handles, stronger locks and an expanded line of colours. Company
innovations continued into the 90's when American Tourister won the Industrial
Designers Society of America award for its EasyTurn wheel handling system. Around
the same time, American Tourister was acquired by Samsonite.
Today sees Samsonite continuing to invest in the American Tourister brand and is
supporting the aspirations of the brand to further increase its strength around the globe.
