U.S. Lighting Group, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Intellitronix Corporation, experienced a record-breaking year in sales, products manufactured, and products shipped in 2020. In the opinion of the company’s management, the US Lighting Group will be profitable anticipating approximately $4 million in gross sales, an estimated $1.4 million or 50% increase over 2019.
“The US Lighting Group had an outstanding year in 2020 with roughly $4 million dollars in gross sales. We surpassed prior year records with products shipped out the door in Q3 and Q4. Many businesses experienced a downturn during the COVID-19 global pandemic, but we were very fortunate to have the opposite occur. At one point, we had a backlog of orders valued over $900,000. To strengthen our production process, we purchased a new Speed Print Technology 700 Series screen printer and high speed Europlacer iineo+ SMT Component Placement System, increasing our printed circuit board (PCB) output three-fold.” said Paul Spivak, CEO of the US Lighting Group.
The US Lighting Group is a US designer and manufacturer of commercial LED lighting products, automotive and patented marine electronics, groundbreaking energy management products for the RV industry.

Thanks to marketing and advances in technology, we have all come to expect that the electronic products we buy will be closely aligned to our individual and specific lifestyle or business requirements. This expected variability, in personal function and style, as well as regulatory compliance and a changing global economic landscape, has made designing and producing new products a challenging prospect. And, on top of the resulting “high-mix, low-volume” production cycles, increasingly more products contain electronic components in varying levels that heighten the complexity of design and manufacturing.
