CEO and Founder Rick Case started Nite Ize as an undergraduate at the University of Colorado in 1989. “I was on a fishing trip using the brand new mini flashlight my family gave me as a gift. I was fishing at night with it, holding it in my mouth. Sure enough, I opened my mouth, and the flashlight fell out. I was staring down into the water, watching my still lit flashlight on the bottom when an idea hit me. That idea became the first product I ever made, the Headband Mini Flashlight Holder.” Thank you to all of our customers for your support over the last 26 years.
Case, who embodies the very essence of entrepreneurial spirit, built his successful company through dedication, inspiration and hard work. He was running the company from his mountain cabin when he received his first order for 42,000 Headbands. Twenty-five years later, Nite Ize continues to expand with a large manufacturing facility and corporate offices based out of beautiful Boulder, Colorado. Case remarked recently, “You have to be passionate, have faith in what you are doing, and be persistent.”
In the years that have passed since that fishing trip, Nite Ize has grown from one bright idea into a company that makes and sells a wide variety of accessories, tools, and devices. Every product we offer is designed with creative innovation for superior functionality, manufactured with top-of-the line materials for optimum durability, and here to make your life easier, safer, and a little more fun – day and night.
