Robert Plath, a pilot for Northwest Airlines since the late 60’s, primarily flew long haul flights to Asia-Pacific. One of the problems that became evident to Bob from his extensive airline experience was luggage. People hand carried luggage at the time or used cumbersome carts to move their bags inside and outside the airport. Bob saw an opportunity to improve this aspect of the travel experience.
In 1987, Bob changed the physical orientation of luggage from horizontal to vertical, added two large wheels and an extension handle and hence invented the Rollaboard, an entirely new way to transport personal belongings while traveling. Fellow airline crew members saw Bob’s invention and immediately wanted a rolling bag like that for themselves. From these humble beginnings, Bob founded the company, Travelpro, and began providing Rollaboard luggage to airline flight crews and pilots across the globe.
The idea was so successful with the airlines; Travelpro launched the product through retail stores in the early 90s. The business really took off; and in the mid-nineties, Travelpro was ranked as one of the fastest growing private companies by Inc. magazine. His invention forever changed the economics of travel, as more passengers opted to fly with only carry-on luggage. Plath sold his business in 1999, and semi-retired.
Today, Travelpro is one of the world’s leading luggage brands, crafting the highest quality luggage for frequent travelers. Travelpro is the brand of choice for the flight crews of over 90 airlines. The company is dedicated to building a lifelong relationship with its customers by consistently meeting and exceeding their expectations.
