In 1922, Graham Trippe, a Chicago-area inventor, obtained a patent for a new precision-focused automobile headlight. This unique design won the gold medal at both the 1928 and 1929 Paris Exposition of Innovation. The Trippe "Speed Light" soon became a successful automotive accessory, improving visibility on everything from fine touring cars to U.S. Army tanks during World War II.

As sealed-beam headlights became standard equipment on post-war vehicles, Trippe Manufacturing Company expanded into the production of rotating warning lights. These were sold to many different businesses as well as the police, fire and ambulance markets. To this day, Tri-Lite, the sister company of Tripp Lite, continues to manufacture industrial and specialty lighting products for shipment around the world.

Addressing a newfound need for on-board AC power in ambulances and recreational vehicles, Tripp Lite developed a line of DC-to-AC inverters in the early 1960s. Over the next 20 years, Tripp Lite grew to become the best known manufacturer of portable inverters in the world-providing portable power for everything from RVs to alternative energy applications.

By 1980, the advent of the personal computer had created a need for battery backup AC power to prevent data loss or hardware damage to computers and other sensitive microprocessor-controlled devices. By integrating their proven inverter technology with a battery charger and transfer switch, Tripp Lite became the first company to manufacture a UPS system specifically designed for desktop PCs. Coupled with the introduction of the Isobar® Premium Surge Suppressor in 1982, Tripp Lite was uniquely positioned to supply the burgeoning computer market with high quality power protection equipment.

As the personal computer became an increasingly important business tool, power protection from Tripp Lite became recognized as an essential add-on to computer installations. 14 million Isobars and more than 3½ million UPS systems later, Tripp Lite remains the leading manufacturer of power protection supplies, including UPS systems, AC and dataline surge suppressors, line conditioners, cabling and connectivity products and network management accessories. In 1999, Tripp Lite became the exclusive licensee for IBM-brand UPS systems. Tripp Lite quality products provide increased reliability and protection to PC workstations, network file servers, telephone systems, point-of-sale terminals, audio/video systems and laboratory equipment. Tripp Lite recently received ISO 9001 certification for the highest standard of design, manufacturing, distribution, marketing and service excellence. Eighty years after it began, the Tripp Lite marketing effort now spans the globe with sales in excess of $175 million and shipment to more than 85 different countries worldwide.
