2013 was a big year for Samsill. While we are sad to see 2013 come to a close, we are excited to see what 2014 has in store for us. We have a feeling it’s going to be a great year! Here are our top three memorable events that occurred in 2013.
Samsill opened it’s doors on April 1st, 1953 as Samsill Brothers Plastics Company. That venture led the company from its beginnings in small rented space in downtown Fort Worth to its status today as one of the world’s largest independently owned manufacturers of ring binders, business accessories, laptop bags and tablet cases.
Tablets have become huge in the past few years. We entered the category with a few “professional” designs and then moved into fashion colors in 2013.
One of the many events we organized to celebrate our 60th anniversary was sending a binder into space. You’ve seen people jump from near space, Lego man and Hello Kitty made a trip so why not a binder? With the help of Texas A&M High Altitude Balloon Club, we sent a binder 96,000 feet into the atmosphere.
