Summit Products is a company that designs and markets educational toys. It was founded in 1995 by Dan Henderson in his Trussville home. It has since grown to employ 24 people and enjoyed over $31 million in revenues in 2007.
In 2005 the company opened a 3,000 square foot office on Gadsden Highway in Trussville. In December 2008 the company moved to 2160 Highland Avenue, a 20,000 square foot building which formerly housed the offices of O2 Ideas.
Summit is best known for its "Zillionz" interactive talking toy ATM machines and cash registers. In January 2009 designer Jeff Parker created a 40-foot-tall talking robot, named "RALF" in its lobby. RALF stands for "Robotic Alien Life Form". He was named by Phillips Academy student Jeffrey Kynard, winner of a contest. The robot is intended to help entertain children visiting the company's offices and testing facility on tours.
