These two industry leading brands grew steadily and in 2008 the United States Luggage brand was reinvented as Solo, with product designs and marketing that better reflected a focus on a younger and more international consumer. Solo today is one of the largest brands in business cases and backpacks sold in Consumer Electronics stores, office superstores, college bookstores, mass retailers, department stores and major etailers. Briggs & Riley is the leader in luxury performance luggage and is sold in specialty retailers and high-end department stores in more than 30 countries, select etailers as well as direct-to-consumer on its own web site.
The enduring success of the company continues to be the family values and atmosphere, combined with a professional organization that prides itself on great teamwork, collaboration, career advancement and an atmosphere of respect both within the company as well as with its long-standing vendors, retailers and of course, consumers. The company has 135 employees with its headquarters in Hauppauge, NY and satellite offices in the UK and China.
