During its half century of operation, Streamlight has become known for its expert engineering approach to creating lighting products that feature extraordinary brightness while also offering high value and durability.

 

Fifty years ago, NASA was interested in developing a solar simulator for the space program to simulate sunlight outside the filtering of the atmosphere. A group of engineers set up a laboratory in Fairfield, NJ, and designed a product that generated 25 million candlepower of light. This research was later used to design and develop a handheld unit that produced one million candlepower, which was then marketed to the military and law enforcement market sectors.

A private investor from the Philadelphia area moved this fledgling company to King of Prussia, PA and, in 1973, created the company that today is known as Streamlight, Inc. The research and development that started in New Jersey was greatly expanded, and in 1977, the company moved its headquarters and production facilities to Norristown, PA.

Steady growth and a continually expanding product line led the company to move once more, in November 2001, to its current headquarters in Eagleville, PA. Today, Streamlight designs, manufactures, and markets high-performance lighting, weapon light/laser sighting devices and scene lighting solutions for professional law enforcement, military, firefighting, industrial, automotive, and outdoor applications. Streamlight is a pioneer in the development of rechargeable lights and helped to revolutionize LED lighting.

During its half century of operation, the company has become known for its expert engineering approach to creating lighting products that feature extraordinary brightness while also offering high value and durability. Streamlight products are sold throughout the U.S. and in over 90 countries worldwide.
