You work hard and we know it. At Targus, we spend hundreds of hours a year learning about how people work, where they work, and what they need to perform at their best.
With a heritage rooted in the mobility of on-the-go-professionals, we strive to advance the mobile accessories category with cutting-edge, quality-made, productivity-boosting solutions — carrying cases, tech accessories, and peripherals — that enable an ever-changing workforce to perform at their best anytime, anywhere.
Since our founding in 1983 with the debut of the original laptop bag, we’ve grown to become a global brand — with 45 offices worldwide and direct distribution in more than 100 countries — that supports large enterprises and end users alike.
