Streamlight recently marked its 40th year of operation, producing lighting products, the company announced.
Since it was founded in 1973, Streamlight has grown from a small company with a single product to an international provider of a broad range of high-performance lights for law enforcement, military, firefighting, industrial, automotive, and outdoor professionals, according to the company.
"We are proud to have provided such reliable and durable lighting tools for our many customers, including first responders, industrial and automotive professionals, and outdoor enthusiasts, for 40 years," said Ray Sharrah, Streamlight's president and CEO.
Streamlight has adapted new LED technology to create higher lumen flashlights that deliver at least 500 lumens. The new lights are designed for flooding an area with light, such as when illuminating a dark alley, work area, or outdoor path. Made possible by a recent shift in LED manufacturing, the high lumen lights also feature Streamlight's trademark long-reaching beam and extended run times.
Streamlight now operates a 165,000-square-foot manufacturing and office facility based in Eagleville, Pa., with more than 250 employees. The company holds more than 110 U.S. and foreign patents.
