Manufacturing Quality and security controls

To meet your demands for quality, safety and performance, we have developed high technology manufacturing equipment and processes that allow us to ensure that BIC® pocket lighters are safe and reliable in normal conditions of use.

Did you know?

5 million lighters are
manufactured everyday
in our factories 
Lighters sold in
Europe are
manufactured in
France and Spain.
Before leaving the
factory, each BIC®
lighter undergoes
more than 50
automatic quality
and security checks!
In each of our factories,
qualified and trained
BIC employees
more than 25% of
their time monitoring
quality and security


All BIC® lighters are produced around the world with the same rigorous, highly effective quality and security control systems. Each non conforming lighter is automatically rejected.
