About Us

Since 1920


In 1920, 13-year-old Sol Koffler arrived on the eastern shores of the United States, eager to pursue his American Dream. Twelve years later, at the height of the Depression, Koffler formed American Tourister Luggage. Mr. Koffler’s vision, integrity and courage revolutionized the luggage industry as it grew to be one of the most recognized consumer brands in the country. In 1978, the family sold American Tourister and formed The Koffler Group, a third-generation family office with a full-service real estate division headquartered in Providence, RI.

Today, Mr. Koffler’s entrepreneurial and charitable spirit continues to define the family business. Mr. Koffler’s belief in giving back to the community that supported him inspired a Koffler family tradition of philanthropy both locally and nationally. That commitment continues today through the donations of Koffler-Bornstein Family Foundation to organizations such as the Jewish Federation, the Morse Life Foundation, Miriam Hospital and The Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
