Since 1952, Edison Price Lighting has proudly operated a full-scale factory in New York City. Far more than an assembly operation, it is a complete metal-working shop. We fabricate nearly all our parts -- down to the nuts and bolts -- in-house, guaranteeing quality control, fast turnaround times, and the detailed-oriented skills needed for modifcations.
Edison Price Lighting is ideally sized to combine computerized machinery with handcrafted techniques.
We are small enough to cross-train a highly-skilled workforce in die-making, spinning, wiring, painting, and more. Trained in multiple techniques, employees flexibly move throughout the factory, depending on the project's needs.
We are large enough to house laser-cutters, milling machines, forming machines, and more. These programmable machines ensure speed, precision, and consistency.
Manufacturing, R&D, Customer Service -- all in one building. Our engineers only need to walk downstairs to check prototypes, our factory employees walk upstairs to confirm designs.

Whenever possible, our operations source local materials, including copper conductors from Pennsylvania, aluminum castings from New Jersey, and paint from Massachusetts.
Sourcing locally reduces shipping distances, thus minimizing turnaround times and environmental impact.
We design and built our products to last for decades. Their seamless design and durable materials minimize the chance of warping or breakage. Additionally, all our parts are serviceable and replaceable, further extending our product's lifetime.
Our long-lasting products help the environment by delaying disposal in a landfill, and the construction and shipment of new products.
No toxic materials
We never use toxic materials or hazardous compounds in our manufacturing process. Instead we opt for non-polluting water-based paints and water-soluble solvents.
All of our purchased product components, such as LED modules, ballasts, and drivers, meet the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. Compliance with RoHS ensures the reduction of toxic materials (lead, cadmium, mercury, Hex-Cr, PBB, PBDE) to universally-acceptable safe levels.
We paint our products in-house using only water-based, low-VOC paint. Unlike hazardous solvent-based paint, our paint does not release noxious fumes, which benefits air quality and our employee’s health. Because our paint is nonpolluting, we clean and recycle our used paint containers, thus eliminating water and soil pollution, and reducing landfill waste.
Material waste reduction
Before we cut parts out of the raw material, our programmable software strategically arranges the parts onto the raw material. By “nesting” the parts in the smallest area possible, we maximize the material's usage. As a result, we minimize resource consumption and waste.
We recycle or resell any excess metals generated by our operations. On average, these metals total 475 pounds per week.
We re-purpose our supplier’s pallets, and recycle as much of our supplier’s packaging as possible.
All of our products are shipped in 25-50% post-consumer recycled packaging. Our cardboard, plastic wrapping, and wooden pallets are all recyclable.
