Mr. DELAHAYE and the SEYNHAEVE brothers joined forces in 1946 to create DELSEY.
DELSEY made use of its experience in the production of camera and record player cases to form a department specializing in “travel items” in molded plastic.
In 1970 DELSEY used its technology to create the first French, high-range, rigid ABS luggage line – the DELSEY AIRSTYLE suitcase.
