Belkin International creates products that help people enhance the power of technology and make their lives better, easier and more fulfilling. This has been Belkin’s mission since it started in 1983. Belkin was founded by Chief Executive Officer Chet Pipkin. His passion was driven by providing his customers with what they needed.
He manufactured computer cables in the evenings and on weekends and sold them to local computer manufacturers and dealers to meet the increasing demand in the personal computer market in the 1980s.
Belkin International currently has three brands, Belkin, Linksys and WeMo, to enhance the technology that connects them to the people, activities and internet experience. Belkin products are renowned for their simplicity and ease of use and the Linksys brand helped make wireless connectivity mainstream around the world. The latest brand, WeMo, is the leader in delivering customisable smart home technology. Its product platform empowers people to monitor, measure and manage their electronics, appliances and lighting at home and on-the-go.
