Since 1919, with the invention of the first practical electric hair clipper, Wahl Clipper Corporation has been the leader in the professional and home grooming category. Today, with over 1,500 employees worldwide, we are proud to carry forward the tradition of innovation and superior customer service that was created by Leo J. Wahl 98 years ago.
While we have changed over the years, we have also stayed the same. We are still headquartered in Sterling, Illinois, USA. Today our products are sold in approximately 165 countries worldwide with 5 global manufacturing facilities as well as 8 sales offices.
Our products remain the finest and most innovative in the industry. And we still provide our retail partners with service that sets the global standard for integrity, value and efficiency.
100 years ago we created a brand new category with the invention of the first practical electric hair clipper. In those 100 years, we've continued to bring quality and innovation to both the professional and home grooming categories by responding to changing customer needs. From the Trim'nVac to the Complement Hair Dryer, we've brought high-quality products and new conveniences into people's homes.
At Wahl, we are proud of our heritage of excellence as well as our remarkable list of ground breaking innovations for the present and future for the global market.
