History

Many tales in tech have humble beginnings. Plugable started in 2009 in Plugable Founder Bernie Thompson's garage. Since then, Plugable has become not only a leader in Docking Stations, but cutting-edge wired and wireless connectivity.

Below you'll find a timeline of product launches, exciting company milestones like our first Kickstarter campaign, and links to the original blog posts as they appeared at the time they were published. It's a fun way to see how the Plugable website and company has changed over its first decade (and change).
