“This is an incredible milestone for any company. For all the steps that go into making a single Zippo lighter, to make 600M of them in 88 years is an amazing feat.
My grandfather, George G. Blaisdell, started Zippo as tiny company in 1932. It was the middle of the Great Depression and everybody said to him, ‘George, this is not going to work.’
He had a difficult time, of course, but with the devotion of his small group of employees, they made it through. And thanks to the continued devotion of our exceptional employees today – several of whom are grandchildren or great-grandchildren of the original employees – we continue that legacy, making something we can all be proud of.
It is an honor to place Zippo’s 600 Millionth Lighter on display in the Zippo/Case Museum as a tribute to this company – its remarkable past and promising future, the thousands of people who have worked at Zippo over the last eight decades, and the city of Bradford, Pennsylvania, Zippo’s home and the words stamped on every single lighter we’ve made, all 600 million of them.”
— George Duke, Zippo’s owner and chairman of the board.
