1949 - COMPANY'S FOUNDING
Elisabeth and Wilhelm Zorn started their business in 1949 with just one simple idea: to provide insulated soft-sided thermal covers for tea, coffee, and breakfast eggs to the neighboring towns of Hessen, Germany. Based in their small home village of Romrod, their initial idea led to the successful creation of the first locally made soft cooler bags for outdoor use.
2019 – THE THIRD GENERATION AND PRODUCTS FOR THE 2020S
Today, the third generation of Zorns has successfully taken over the business, with three of Manfred’s sons; Maximilian, Philipp, and Christian continuing the long Zorn family history in the cooler business.
The three brothers continue to create innovative, high-quality, and category-leading outdoor products, with their current focus being the development of new solutions for environmentally and ecologically friendly, as well as energy efficient, thermoelectric coolers.
The Zorn GmbH headquarters are located at Ezetilstraße 1 – D 35410 Hungen – Inheiden, Germany (approx. 60 km north of Frankfurt). A new production facility in Yangzhou China was founded to produce quality coolers.
