IMCOŽ is the second oldest operational lighter manufacturer in the world, second only to RonsonŽ in the USA. In 1907 Vienna, Julius Meister founded the Austrian button and hardware factory Julius Meister & Co. IMCO” was created from these initials. The factory initially mainly produced buttons for the military. After WWI, there was no longer a demand for these and so, from 1918 onwards, IMCOŽ switched to the production of cigarette lighters. In the early days, these were made of empty cartridge cases. The shape of the cartridges could still be seen in the forms of the early IMCOŽ lighters. The first IMCOŽ lighter was developed between 1918 and 1919 and in 1922 the first patent was registered, No. 89538. Since then, around 70 different lighters have been developed and sold worldwide. The most famous IMCOŽ lighter is the petrol lighter TRIPLEX Super™. This product was developed as early as 1936, underwent technical improvements in the 50s and is still being produced today in the same design. The mid-50s saw the extension of the petrol lighter range with the models Junior and Streamline. The legendary and classic design combined with 100% reliability has made these three lighters an international success.
