The company was founded in Denver, Colorado, on March 10, 1910, by Black Hawk, Colorado-born luggage salesman Jesse Shwayder (1882–1970) as the Shwayder Trunk Manufacturing Company.
A religious man, Shwayder named one of his initial cases Samson, after the Biblical strongman, and began using the trademark Samsonite in 1941 for its tapered vulcanized fiber suitcase, introduced in 1939.
In 1965 after the Samsonite suitcase became its best-selling product, the company changed its name to SAMSONITE. For many years the subsidiary SAMSONITE Furniture Co. made folding chairs and card tables in Murfreesboro, Tennessee The Shwayder family sold the company to Beatrice Foods in 1973. Samsonite operated with relative independence within Beatrice until 1986, when the company was sold to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. Subsequently, the company went through multiple changes of ownership in the 1980s and into the 1990s. First, Samsonite was spun off from KKR as part of E-II, which came under the control of American Brands E-II went through a bankruptcy, and was renamed Astrum International. In 1993, Astrum purchased American Tourister luggage, complementing Samsonite.
In 1995, Astrum split, and an independent Samsonite (now including American Tourister) was once again headquartered in Denver.
The Denver factory, which employed 4,000 at its peak, closed in May 2001. Samsonite headquarters moved from Denver to Mansfield, Massachusetts, after a change of ownership in May 2005.
Samsonite moved its US marketing and sales offices from 91 Main Street in Warren, Rhode Island, to Mansfield, Massachusetts, effective September 1, 2005.
In 2005 the company was acquired by Marcello Bottoli, former CEO of Louis Vuitton, to pull them out of a long slump.
Bortoli left the company in 2009.
In July 2007 finance investor CVC Capital Partners took over Samsonite for $1.7 billion.
CVC Capital Partners Ltd. became Samsonite’s fifth owner in 21 years.
On September 2, 2009, Samsonite Company Store LLC (U.S. Retail Division), formally known as Samsonite Company Stores Inc, filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy It planned to close up to 50% of its stores and discontinue the “Black Label” brand in the United States.
In June 2011 Samsonite raised US$ 1.25 billion in an initial public offering in Hong Kong.
In August 2012 Samsonite paid $35 million in cash to buy the high-end luggage brand Hartmann, which was founded in 1877.
In June 2014, Samsonite agreed to buy technical outdoor backpack brand Gregory Mountain Products from Black Diamond, Inc.
, for US$85.0 million in cash.
In March 2016 Samsonite agreed to buy luxury baggage maker Tumi for $1.8 billion in its largest-ever acquisition.

When I’m looking for a suitcase, I really want to make sure that it spins so that I can move with it pretty easily in all directions, something that I have to wheel. I’ll have to be thirty. I can’t like pick it up and, like literally run through the airport, I want it to be like easy to spot on the baggage carousel.
I’M personally, a fan of soft sided suitcases, I’m an over-packer, and I want to be able to just like get as much in there as I can and just like stuff it and sit on it, and I feel like with a hard case. You can’t really do that. I do not want a suitcase to be like hard to pull and I don’t want the handle to be wobbly.
What I’m calling it my current suitcase handle is wobbly and that’s an issue [ Music ] because of the like the hard exterior it seems like it would hold up, feels like this could last like a good long time to take some beating. It’S so lightweight. I like that, it don’t look like it would be. Oh that’s the color, but I was just like. Oh, it’s gon na be like a stone or something, but it’s really really light.
They have these little side, legs too, which could be a little difficult if you’re, trying to like squeeze it into a tight space, but I like that, like, if you’re flipping it over here, it’s not just laying directly on the ground. I think this. This is definitely a very high durability suitcase. You know the strap doesn’t feel like it’s gon na come off, which has been a problem before for me pretty sturdy.
I don’t feel it. I don’t feel like this is gon na crack on me. Thank soon it’s got. Nice wheels that his wheel around pivots really well and the wheels are nice look at them. Go. I really don’t like when the squiggles a lot. I mean I’ve never really encountered a suitcase, that’s like sturdier than this per se, but I wish it was.
I don’t feel like this is gon na break on me anytime soon the handles are pretty durable at full extension. It seems like a little like a little flimsy ER, but here it feels like you could really like run with it through the airport. I don’t I don’t love the handles, they just kind of feel a little weird to pick up.
There are so many parts that I don’t even know what to do. There’s like a combination and there’s some place to put a key. If I was very concerned about the security of my suitcase and I wanted to lock it, I would probably be happy that there are so many locks here. It looks nice I’ve. Never, I don’t think I’ve ever locked. My suitcase in my life, when I suppose that, if you check your bag – and you want to be safe, looks like it would do a job.
The zippers okay you’ve got like these little bits right like stick out um, which i think is meant to go in and secure. Oh yes or the lock, okay, it’s recessed inside the suitcase, which I guess helps keep it a little more durable. But then also I have fat fingers, so that’s just a little bit harder for me to just go grab the zipper and open it up. There’s a lot of what puzzle doors you know what’s happening.
They think is that pretty easily you seem durable cuz. I feel like every time, you’re trying to zip your suitcase really quickly. You inevitably take the wrong zipper in really yeah. You know I’ve never understood that whole, like second zipper situation and also cases. What is this really doing for us [, Music ]? It doesn’t look like this has any like outside pockets, which I really prefer because sometimes like I wanted, I want to keep my passport nearby. I want to keep my boarding pass nearby.
I just remembered how passionately I feel about this. The suitcase that I have now that I love this compartment like zips for the bottom, so if you ever gon na get something out like everything has to spill out, so I like the distance from the top. I also never really understood that you, so these guys in the suitcases I’m like also. What are you doing? I like, but there’s a zipper in the bottom, because I actually have recently started like packing shoes under and there’s like in between the bars.
It looks expandable a little bit, which is good, which is part of my issue with a with a hard suitcase. Just doesn’t look that big to me, so this is like maybe like a shoe pocket, which is handy, I think that’s it. I said more than I expected from used to the topcase being really shallow, I’m not being a lot here. This definitely the top half fit a lot more than I was expecting this thing. Then it makes it really easy to put everything in there pack it up and then flip it over, which has been a like.
A problem for me is that whenever I pack stuff in the lid – and I flip it over – it, moves and I kind of falls down – I just kind of repack, it so say what does this do just like kind of compresses stuff that I really like gets Everything in there more than I expected to fit in the suitcase so wouldn’t be my suitcase, though it wouldn’t be. My first choice pros for the bag tons of space inside really good compartments and zippers swivels all the way around really easily. So I think you could definitely move quickly was it my only con would be, but it’s a hard shell.
I can’t get over that a little bit, but maybe I need to I’m not really enamored by like those locks and battery chargers and all that stuff like if it gets around and it packs a lot then I’m interested, so I thought it was really effective. This was really really roomy, it wasn’t like one side was shallow and one side wasn’t like they were both really deep and it was really easy to get everything in there.
I would definitely consider buying it. I think this is a pretty effective suitcase. It takes a little bit of studying to figure out all the parts, but it’s not too bad. It moves pretty well. It has a lot of compartments that make like good use of the space that there is. I wouldn’t buy it because I’m still a soft suitcase fan, it is, you know, very durable, very easy to pack a lot of room on the inside and I really like that the handles are pretty durable. It’S got nice wheels that is wheel around and there are no outside pockets for you to keep like stuff.
You want nearby, which I really prefer the zippers they’re sort of recessed into the groove, and that it’s makes it a little hard to get. This is very straight board. It gives you all the space that it’s Inc sort of encompassing and tries to keep everything else out of the way. I don’t know if I would make this my go-to, but it’s definitely like I director. I got ta keep this after. Like [, Music, ]
