Sunlite Science & Technology, Inc. is an LED lighting fixture manufacturer. With 18 years of experience in the field, Sunlite manufactures LED lighting products with a wide range of applications from warehouse ceiling bays to under kitchen cabinets.

Sunlite was founded in 1996 as an LED chip and wafer manufacturing company. Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) technology was used to fabricate chips for sale to LED assembly companies for use in LED lighting applications. But it was soon discovered that because traditional methods are so widespread and each step of the manufacturing process is performed by a different company that the final products fell far short of the original potential in the LED chips and wafers.

So knowing LEDs and the missed potential in most of the lighting fixtures on the market, Sunlite decided to make their own LED lighting products. Using vertical integration, Sunlite now controls all aspects of production and design, providing the freedom of innovation in multiple markets. Sunlite's proprietary Application-Specific LEDs (AS-LEDs) have a non-traditional design that is made specifically by Sunlite for Sunlite lighting products. While other manufacturers take the extra steps of putting their LEDs on a Metal Core Printed Circuit Board (MC-PCB) and use plastic coverings, Sunlite places their AS-LEDs directly in aluminum housing. Thus, the unsurpassed heat dissipation and durability of Sunlite products catapult them to the top in terms of efficiency, brightness and lifetime.

Founded in 1996, Sunlite manufactures high-end LED flashlights and general lighting products with manufacturing facilities in both the United States and China.
