The Los Angeles Business Journal has named Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced lighting systems and virtually indestructible cases, to its list of Los Angeles County’s Fastest Growing Private Companies.

Ranking #25 in Los Angeles County overall and second in the $100+ Million revenue category, Pelican was recently featured in California Congresswoman Jane Harman’s “State of the Region” speech as a shining example of how manufacturing is alive and well in California.

The award honors companies that are headquartered in Los Angeles County and were established prior to January 1, 2007. They must be privately-owned and cannot be a subsidiary of another company. Companies must have at least $5 million in revenue for 2009 and are ranked by revenue growth from 2007-2009.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from such a well-respected publication,” said Lyndon Faulkner, president and CEO. “This award validates our efforts and spurs us on to continue to create and manufacture the toughest and most reliable products around.”

Born in 1976 in a Torrance, California garage, Pelican Products grew to become a global company, operating in 12 countries, with 22 offices and five manufacturing facilities. It acquired Hardigg Industries in December, 2008.

Pelican Products' lighting systems and cases are backed by a guarantee of excellence and used by professionals who work in extreme environments, including fire safety, law enforcement and the military.
