About Allsop, Inc.

Allsop is more than just a 50+ year old family business. Allsop is an ideal. We connect the points between professionalism, invention and amazing people. We're always pushing the envelope and striving toward the concept of "patented ingenuity" within the context of our unique team culture.

The Allsop family has been building consumer product companies and products since 1965 when the founder, Ivor "Buss" Allsop invented the Ski-Boot In. Two of Ivor's children, Mike and Jim, led the family into the consumer electronics business with the introduction of the mechanized audio cassette deck cleaner and the development and introduction of the first video cassette recorder "VCR" cleaner in the 1970's. In the 1980's and 1990's the family businesses had expanded and the company became a global company with the establishment of Allsop Europe in Waterford Ireland.

Over the last 10 years, the Allsop family has expanded and organized around the next generation of Allsop family members.  Mike Allsop has recently retired and Jim remains in the business as CEO and Co-President, overseeing all the entities. He is passionate about invention and solving problem consumers may face across all our brands.  He can often be found cruising the halls with a new gadget in tow.  Mike's son, Ryan Allsop, is driving the day-to-day efforts in the multi-branded technology division and oversees the family bike rack and towing company, Softride. In addition to the technology division and Softride brand, the company has Jamey Allsop, Jim's Daughter, to head up the growing Home and Garden division, focusing on her passion for the latest solar, gardening and lighting styles and technologies.  Brett Allsop, Mike's other son, lead the technology division up until his sudden death.  He is sorely missed but will always be remembered as an incredible entrepreneur, family member and friend to everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.

Allsop's latest chapter of growth includes acquisition of Digital Innovations in September 2015.  As an industry leader, Digital Innovations has successfully created consumer electronics care and maintenance products as well as a broad range of quality computer and technology peripherals.  The entire team at Allsop is excited about this new addition to the Allsop Family of Brands as Digital Innovations shares Allsop's spirit of innovation and goal to deliver unique, value-added products to our customers.

More important than our brands and product lines, the Allsop family has had a tradition of bringing on board a team of hundreds, if not thousands, of wonderful people over the decades. The Allsop family has been blessed to have hired some of the most interesting, creative, thoughtful and inspiring team mates all over the world.  Artists, designers, accountants, office managers, marketing geniuses, engineers, salesmen and women and other amazingly talented and friendly team mates. We could never have survived and prospered without our extended family and we strongly believe that being a family business without private equity or Wall Street involved allows us to connect and foster a culture with everyone in a more real way. Whether you meet our teams in our permanent locations based in Ireland, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington State or on the road you will find our people to be the kind of people who you respect.
