The Reggio-Emilia based company, Cellular Italia S.p.A., established in 1990 as a company for distributing the first mobile phones, was launched in the nineties with the Cellularline brand.
Soon after, thanks to the success of the initiative, the company began the production of mobile phone devices on a regular basis, consolidating its presence in Italy and starting to export products abroad. Growth and change are the words that epitomise Cellularline’s first twenty years.
In 2005 the company became a group, and in 2013, when L Capital joined this marked a new development journey towards the internationalisation of the brand and distribution in more than 60 countries. In 2018, Cellularline joined AIM Italia, while the next year it became part of the MTA.
In 2020, thanks to strategic expansion through the purchase of the European licence of the established brand “Altec Lansing”, the Group became part of the audio upper segment. The same year, with the acquisition of “Worldconnect AG”, the world leader in premium travel adapters, it was able, yet again, to strengthen its international presence and build a strategic channel in the travel accessories sector.
