The Illuminating Journey
of Primelite Manufacturing
American Pride Illuminated in Manufacturing Excellence
During this fervent patriotic week, when we honor and celebrate the birth of our nation, it’s particularly fitting that we cast a luminous spotlight on a true embodiment of the American dream – the inspiring saga of Primelite Manufacturing.
Born in the tempestuous era of the 1960s, amidst social and political upheaval, Primelite was built on a solid bedrock of belief in the “Made in America” ethos. As the vast majority of our elegant luminaires bear the proud hallmark of being American-made, echoing our steadfast commitment to domestic production.
From its inception, service to our nation has been deeply ingrained in Primelite’s identity. Our esteemed founder, Irwin Heit, a courageous World War II veteran, passionately channeled his patriotic fervor into creating Primelite Manufacturing. To him, it was more than a business venture; it was a sincere, heartfelt tribute to the land he loved.
Irwin Heit’s Legacy: Primelite Manufacturing and the American Dream
Nestled in the heart of Freeport, NY for a considerable span of its existence, Primelite resonates with profound “Made in America” pride. It is home to some of the finest and original artisans in the industry, who labor with dedication and skill to produce our lighting fixtures, accessories, and more. We confidently assert that our products are “Made in America”, thus providing employment to fellow Americans and crafting superior, top-tier American products for the discerning lighting industry.
Our emblem, emblazoned with the stars and stripes, and the proud “Made in America” tags that accompany our products, reflect our unwavering dedication to the principles and values that have made America great. Primelite stands as a tangible and brilliant testament to the excellence of American manufacturing, glowing as bright as the ideal it represents.
Harnessing the LED Miracle
Primelite has consistently positioned itself at the cutting edge of lighting technology, illuminating the path forward for the industry. We have not only kept pace with but often spearheaded the industry-wide embrace of innovations that have culminated in today’s LED marvels of brilliance.
Our technological prowess has enabled us to pioneer advancements that redefine illuminance, making us a beacon in the realm of lighting technology. “It is, and always has been, our driving ambition to introduce and disseminate the very best of each evolutionary leap in technology to our clients.”
One significant innovation is the exploration of our “Mighty Brighty” Linear Lighting system. This cutting-edge development in lighting design offers both aesthetics and functionality, redefining expectations and setting new standards in the industry.
In addition to our focus on new technologies, Primelite continues to respect and upgrade our tried-and-tested products. We understand the importance of maintaining our classic offerings, and continually revamping and upgrading these existing models to keep them relevant in today’s ever-evolving technology landscape.
At times, this advancement of our technology also requires us to refine established methods to modernize our traditional offerings. An example would be our shade spinning process, a method used to form metal sheets into diverse shapes, and which is instrumental in producing almost all of our metal light shades.
We’ve recently transitioned this process in-house, a move that’s set to improve not only the quality of our products but also the efficiency of our operations and the cost-effectiveness of our production. This change also paves the way for us to offer, and create, custom lighting shades, tailored to individual needs and preferences.
Through our work, we strive to ensure that the flame of American manufacturing burns brightly into the future.
