Belkin has come a long way to become the market leader across its product lines in just over two decades. From a garage in Hawthorne, California, with two employees and sales of $100,000 for the year, Belkin has become one of the fastest-growing companies in the world, expanding to over 1,000 employees and sales topping $1 billion. In addition to earning Inc. magazine's 2003 "Hall of Fame" award, Belkin has been listed twice in its list of "500 Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies in the U.S.," the "Inner City Top 100" list for six consecutive years, and the Los Angeles Business Journal's "Fastest Growing Private Companies" list for five years.
July 23, 2008 Belkin is listed in the "Top Corporations" list for the most awards won in the 2008 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) competition, as well as most awards won in the last five years.
April 3, 2008 "These Belkin products [voice recorders and media readers] are great examples of how even a company with a track record of producing commodity goods-cables and switch boxes-can make a relatively rapid transformation by focusing on clean, elegant industrial design and the right partnerships ... Getting creative inspiration from the right source is even more important than making money from an exclusive business deal; as these accessories show, Belkin is the rare company that has done both."
