Made in the U.S.A. Monday – Maglite

Form time to time you will encounter a product that stands apart from it competitors. Have you ever seen a lighter that was better than a Zippo? Me neither. Tough, lasting, well made, products are becoming more and more rare these days. Everything seems to have an increasingly shorter shelf life. Can you even imagine buy something that would last a decade, or perhaps your entire life? Do you even think that’s possible? 

magliteThe people at “Mag Instruments” do, they are the makers of the Maglite. Maglite’s are sturdy quality built flashlights that can handle just about anything you can throw at them. A favorite tool of law enforcement, if the sun is down you can usually see one on a police officer’s belt or in their hand. They come in a wide range of sizes, from the pen light to the 4 “D” battery baton style. When you hold a “Maglite” flashlight you can feel how sturdy it is. 

Based in Ontario California, “Mag Instruments” employs over 800 people. They are so dominant in their field that they plan to one day export 50% of their products all over the world, proving that American workers can compete and succeed when given a chance.

I bought a “Maglite” nine years ago, I still have it and it looks as good as the day I got it. Consider buying a “Maglite” for yourself. Place it in a draw and when a storm hits and the power goes out, it will be there. A reliable, quality, American made flashlight.
