Every flashlight made by Mag Instrument, Inc., represents one man’s abiding commitment to product quality, and to the cause of keeping flashlight-industry manufacturing jobs in America. A champion of free enterprise and U.S.-based manufacturing, Anthony Maglica is the president of Mag Instrument, Inc. and the creator of the MAGLITE® flashlight, now an icon of classic American design. Mr. Maglica knows the difference between good quality and great quality, and he knows what makes that difference — an abiding commitment to real, true product excellence. Further, he understands that quality is not a goal but a process; not an endpoint but a dogged, relentless pursuit — all day, every day. Since 1979, MagLite® flashlights have been synonymous with built-in-America quality. Every flashlight we build represents the culmination of more than 40 years of research, development and refinement.
