ZIPPO lighters have been produced in Bradford, Pennsylvania (and only there!) since 1932. In 2012, during its 80th anniversary year, ZIPPO production surpassed the landmark 500 millionth lighter.
To date, every ZIPPO pocket lighter is backed by the famous, unconditional lifetime guarantee: "It works or we fix it free.™" In more than 85 years, no one has ever spent a cent on the mechanical repair of a ZIPPO pocket lighter regardless of its age or condition.
The ZIPPO pocket lighter is ingrained in American culture and is a global icon of durability and reliability.
