Zippo Manufacturing Company makes reusable metal lighters that have been made in thousands of different styles since their introduction. Zippo is one of the most famous brands in the world. George Blaisdell founded the company in 1932. The company's headquarters are located in Bradford, USA.
Zippo quickly became famous during World War II. Since then, these lighters have become synonymous with the US military, and very popular in pop culture, Hollywood and Broadway.
The high quality of the product is indicated by the fact that all Zippo windproof lighters come with an unlimited lifetime warranty, advertised with the trademark “It works or we'll fix it for free.” The company's website states: “For almost 75 years, no one has ever spent a cent on mechanical repair of a Zippo lighter, regardless of the age or condition of the lighter.”
