About Us - Our Story
Over a Century of Lighting Innovation 

The original Peerless Light Company was founded in Chicago in 1892 by three immigrant brothers.
All three were inventors, holding some 50 patents among them, and the company developed and
manufactured a number of their original ideas. By the 1920s, Peerless had expanded, with operations
in Chicago, New York, St. Louis and San Francisco.
