Logitech introduced its first retail mouse in 1985 and shipped its 100 millionth mouse in 1996. By 2003, Logitech had shipped 500 million mice and today Logitech makes 376,000 mice per day and 7.8 million mice per month.
“Since the first click of the Logitech® P4 mouse in 1982, Logitech mice have played an indispensable role in the evolution of the personal computer,” said Gerald P. Quindlen, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “During the last few decades, the way people use computers has changed dramatically – what was once strictly a business tool has become highly integrated into our personal lives. Logitech has continually pursued innovations to meet those changing conditions, introducing – in the last five years alone – the world’s first laser mouse, hyper-fast scrolling and the nano-receiver.”
