Our History

DuraBrite™ began with a vision to create advanced lighting solutions to excel across extreme weather applications and operational environments, from crab fishing in Alaska’s Bering Sea, to hazardous construction and demolition environments. To this end, we’ve leveraged our decades of experience engineering cutting edge technologies in the space, aerospace, military and marine fields.

Combining military-grade materials and highly engineered packaging techniques, DuraBrite products balance brightness, color rendition accuracy, beam uniformity, beam spread angle, temperature control, and the weight and feel of each luminaire to help you do your job safely with the best overall illumination possible. This puts the DuraBrite family of products, including the DuraBrite Pro, Standard, and Mini Series marine lights, in a class of their own, as seen on smash hit fan favorite TV shows like Nat Geo Channel’s “Wicked Tuna” and Animal Planet’s “Whale Wars”. 

The municipal safety, recreation, law enforcement, national defense, and commercial fishing industries were among the first to call upon DuraBrite to support and protect their workforce. In these sectors, safety remains a top priority, and visibility relies upon lights with both high optical output and low energy consumption. To aid ease of mobility, our products must be lightweight but tough as nails and virtually indestructible to survive the elements and daily use.  We meet these demands by guaranteeing our product’s performance through hundreds of hours of extensive testing for each design feature.

In a saturated market of mundane LED lighting products, one of DuraBrite’s key differentiators is our CEO – an MIT doctorate recipient and avid inventor responsible for numerous patents, and winner of several prestigious awards for his groundbreaking inventions enabling the production of ultra-light weight chassis and ultra-high temperature power electronics. His vision drives our focus on engineering and pursuit of innovation. 

Our strong relationship with DuraBrite’s primary financial backer, Sensitron Semiconductor, dovetails with our CEO’s scientific accomplishments. Headquartered in New York, Sensitron is an industry-leading supplier of high reliability power electronics to major technology brands including Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, Honeywell, Orbital, and SSL. 

Collectively, our robust history equates to 50+ years of expertise in high-reliability electronic design, packaging, and testing techniques.
