Streamlight Inc. celebrated 35 years of operations with a gala reception and tours of its newly expanded headquarters in Eagleville, Pa.
More than 250 guests, including Lower Providence Township officials, customers,
employees and affiliated distribution company workers were invited Sept. 13 to
tour the 75,000-foot addition to office and manufacturing space.

users across many different markets - from firefighting and law enforcement and
military, to industrial, automotive and sporting goods - with this new
addition,” said Brad Penney, president and CEO of Streamlight.
“As we look to the future, we remain committed to providing only the highest
quality flashlight products,” Penney added. “Our expanded facility will enable
us to keep pace with the growth we continue to experience, which has led to the

and manufacturing needs.”
The addition to the headquarters began in October 2007, and added 55,000 square
