Black Box CorporationBlack Box Corporation is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA and was co-founded by Gene Yost and Dick Raub in 1977. The company began selling connectivity devices - the "little black boxes" - that customers needed to connect their primary communications products. The company was originally called Expandor, Inc., but it soon changed to Black Box because customers came to know the company by its catalogue name.
When the first Black Box Catalogue rolled off the presses in early 1977, it had just 6 pages, containing 9 products and it generated $170,000 in sales. Today the Black Box Catalogue-an enormous 700+ page book-features more than 10,000 products and has international versions published in 8 languages.
