Larson Electronics was founded by Ernie Larson in 1973 and purchased the original Magnalight brand name and line of portable handheld lighting equipment from R&L Enterprises. Larson Electronics started out supplying high power magnetic mount and permanent mount spotlights and floodlights to the military, utilities, telephone and electrical power industries and has since expanded to provide a full line of lighting equipment to the federal, public, industrial and commercial sectors as well. Larson Electronics has since its inception become a leader in the industrial lighting industry and has serviced federal, state and local governments throughout the United States and Europe as well as the US Secret Service, US State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security.
Larson Electronics manufactures and supplies a wide array of industrial and commercial grade lighting equipment and related accessories. Larson specializes in high grade explosion proof and intrinsically safe lighting fixtures, power supplies, power distribution substations, and related plugs, receptacles, and cords. They also provide an extensive array of general use work lights, area lights, equipment lighting, light towers, portable lighting and rechargeable lighting gear, constantly updating inventory to include new lighting technologies.
