American Tourister (by Samsonite)
Immigrant Sol Koffler founded American Luggage Works in Providence, Rhode Island in 1933 with his life savings. He was determined to produce luggage priced at $1 in the midst of the Great Depression. The company’s breakthrough came soon after when Koffler devised a new line that was significantly better than that of the competition; he named it American Tourister.In 1993, American Tourister was acquired by Astrum International, which also made Samsonite luggage. Astrum was renamed the Samsonite Corporation two years later.
