Manufacturer Spotlight: USHIO

There are good reasons why certain products become household names. We thought you’d like to learn about some of the companies that supply our bulbs. Let’s start with USHIO.

USHIO, Inc. was founded in Japan in 1964 and is Japan’s leading developer of high-quality light sources and systems. USHIO America dates to 1967 and serves a global market, with a focus on discharge and halogen lighting. The firm specializes in industrial lighting and partners with other innovative companies to move the lighting industry into the future and meet the varied needs of its customers.

USHIO is a medium-sized company that can both respond to the needs of Original Equipment Manufacturers and maintain systems that offer advanced design and production capabilities. When it comes to manufacturing processes, USHIO is committed to delivering exceptional consistency in its product line, even when producing large volumes.

The company prides itself on being a one-stop resource for consumers. USHIO has developed aftermarket programs to support niche markets and the distributors that sell to them. A visit to the USHIO website reveals that the firm offers a broad range of general and specialty lighting products.

USHIO is committed to a strong environmental policy by meeting or exceeding environmental regulations. As recently as 2007, two of its California locations earned stringent ISO certification for Environmental Management Systems. In 2013, USHIO launched a Quality Assurance Center for its medical products to meet the recent ISO 13484 international standard that demands extra compliance in that industry. The company clearly practices what it preaches.

Our relationship with USHIO dates to 1988. We are a member of USHIO’s Emerald Club, which provides marketing and branding support. “USHIO has the best customer service of our major vendors,” says Randy Golisano, Marketing Specialist and Head of Purchasing for Bulb Direct. “They are friendly, engaging, and responsive to any changes in pricing or availability of their products. Their quality is consistently top notch.”
