Ronson

Firmu založil na přelomu 19. a 20. století Louis V. Aronson jako Art Metal Works of Newark, New Jersey. Ve 2m. letech se název změnil na Ronson, v roce 1945 na Ronson Art Metal Inc. a nakonec v roce 1954 na Ronson Corporation. První zapalovač byl firmou vyroben v r. 1913 a nabízen jako “Wonderliter”, šlo o škrtací zapalovač který známe jako věčnou zápalku. V roce 1919 vyrobyl Ronson první škrtací zapalovač ve tvaru pera nebo propisovací tužky. První automatický zapalovač byl patentován v r. 1918 a na trh uveden v letech 1926-27 jako Ronson “Banjo”. Následoval v roce 1928 model “Standard” a v r.1929  “Princess” ten se vyráběl snad 30 let. Z počátku 30. let pochází další slavný Ronsonův patent - stolní model “Touch Tip”, různé variace s tímto mechanismem patří dnes ke sběratelsky nejoblíbenějším stolním zapalovačům. Ve stejné době začal Ronson vyrábět i zapalovače spojené s cigaretovým pouzdrem, používaly opět mechanismus modelu “Standard”. Ronson “Adonis” byl představen v r. 1947 a vyráběl se 20 let. Na poč. 50. let Ronson nabídl i svůj první plynový zapalovač. Dalším velkým úspěchem firmy byl plynový model “Varaflame” v 60. letech. Ronson patřil k nejdůležitějším americkým výrobcům už od třicátých let, kdy si konkurovali hlavně s Evansem. Vedle Zippa byl jediným americkým výrobcem, který fungoval až do nedávné minulosti. Zdaleka jsem zde nepromluvil o všech vyráběných typech, nabídka firmy byla ale tak pestrá, že o ronsonech vyšla celá řada sběratelských příruček v angličtině.
