Zippo opening stores in China after manufacturing 500 millionth lighter

The company will begin selling numerous products including clothing, accessories and Zippo perfume.

“We are working with a company to introduce a line of men’s apparel and sportswear for the Asian market, and in turn we’ll market to the U.S.,” David Warfel, global marketing director, said.

While products are currently being geared towards the specific cultural needs, the company plans to eventually make its way to the U.S.  

Warfel added that the Zippo hopes to eventually open stores in the U.S. that the company would own and manage.

Zipoo, founded in 1932, will produce its 500 millionth lighter today.
The manufacturing will also correspond with the birthday of company founder George Blaisdell (pictured right).  

“A woman who has worked here 47 years, who had been a secretary to Mr. Blaisdell, knew that June 5 was his birthday, so we regulated production,” Warfel stated.

In March of this year, Zippo received the “E Star” award by U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson.

"We are deeply honored to have been recognized by the United States government for our continued expansion efforts, especially as we celebrate our 80th anniversary and approach the manufacture of our 500 Millionth windproof lighter,” said George Duke, owner and chairman of the board. “While we strengthen our international presence and create jobs domestically, it’s important that we continue to acquaint overseas markets with classic Zippo craftsmanship and quality products. We are anticipating strong growth internationally and are excited about expanding our global footprint even more in the coming years.”

The company has invited national and international media to document the momentous lighter being manufactured on Thursday.

Zippo media spend increased 87 percent from 2009 to 2011. is currently Zippo’s AOR.
