Conair's product lines endure and thrive.

EAST WINDSOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Conair Corp. began in 1959 in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, as a small hair appliance and hair care company. Today it is one of the largest and most diversified consumer products companies in the world.

Brands under the Conair corporate banner include Cuisinart, Waring, Babyliss PRO, Scunci, Allegro, Interplak, TravelSmart, Conair Hospitality, Conair Pet and Conair Home.

Conair's mission is to continue its focus on innovation and advanced technology, to develop new products that improve the everyday lives of consumers and the businesses of its professional customers all over the world.

This global leader in the manufacture and distribution of personal care, grooming, health and beauty products, as well as premium kitchen tools and cookware, is headquartered here, with sales and marketing operations in Stamford, Conn. Conair's passion for innovation and technology continues to result in products that exceed customers' expectations.

The pistol-grip hair dryer, which Conair began manufacturing in the mid-1960s, changed the way the world did hair. The company's founder, Leandro Rizzuto, personally taught hairdressers how to use this innovative new hair dryer--"a brilliant alternative to the standing dryer"--to get clients in and out of the salon faster. Conair's iconic Yellowbird, introduced in 1972, remains one of the most respected and recognized blow dryers in the industry. Today the revolution continues, Conair says, with the company's ongoing commitment to innovation and technology resulting in the delivery of new and better products year after year.

Through decades of hard work, the dedication of thousands of employees, strategic diversification and acquisitions, and that constant commitment to producing innovative products, Conair has evolved into a $2 billion-plus company, selling personal care products, as well as consumer and commercial kitchen appliances and cookware, under more than 25 brand names in more than 120 countries around the world.
