Thankful for a History Rich in Innovation

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Nov 26, 2013) -

A few key facts:

  • DELSEY was founded in 1946 by Emile DELahaye and the Andrew and Walter SEYnhaeve association. These three men started sewing leather cases for cameras and DELSEY quickly became the first French producer of camera cases.

  • DELSEY is present on five continents and in over 110 countries.

  • A DELSEY suitcase is sold every 10 seconds.

  • DELSEY collections are designed at the DELSEY headquarters in Paris, and at the US headquarters in Baltimore.

A few DELSEY innovations:

  • Now widely famous for their selection of luggage, DELSEY took the world of travel by storm in the 1970's with the first line of hard-side suitcases: DELSEY Airstyle.

  • DELSEY created the world's first rigid suitcase on wheels in 1970 with a TROLLEY system that revolutionized the travel habits of jet-setters.

  • In 2009 DELSEY launched the patent-pending Over Weight Indicator on Helium Fusion Lite 2.0, allowing travelers to lift their bag and determine whether it exceeds the standard 50 lbs. weight allowance.

  • This year DELSEY won the Travel Goods Association Product Innovation Award for the DELSEY Helium Aero, a modern hard-side case that features hard-side exterior pocket, providing travelers with added organization options.

  • DELSEY has just launched www.delsey.com, an interactive portal empowering travelers with details on everything from the brand, to packing tips and what can fit into each DELSEY suitcase. This flagship site is also the exclusive way to access DELSEY worldwide collections in the US.
