Belkin International create products that help people realize the power of technology and make people’s lives better, easier and more fulfilling. This has been Belkin’s mission since their inception in 1983. Belkin was founded by CEO, Chet Pipkin, in his parent’s garage. Even back then, Chet’s passion was driven by solving customer’s needs. He manufactured computer cable assemblies in the evenings and on weekends, and sold them to local computer manufacturers and dealers in response to the burgeoning personal computer market in the 1980’s. Since then, they have kept their southern California origins and are based in Playa Vista, right in the heart of the Los Angeles tech center. Today, Belkin International has three brands – Belkin, Linksys and WeMo – to enhance the technology that connects them to the people, activities and experiences they love. Belkin products are renowned for their simplicity and ease of use, while their Linksys brand helped make wireless connectivity mainstream around the globe. Their newest brand, WeMo, is the leader in delivering customizable smart home experiences. Their product platform empowers people to monitor, measure and manage their electronics, appliances and lighting at home and on-the-go.
