For over 30 years, Tele-Lite is a manufacturer & distributor primarily to the emergency services. Tele-Lite evolved out of Corbett-Steeves Pattern Works (Est. 1914) and an interest in the fire and emergency services. In 1971 John Steeves, a fireman and the President of Tele-Lite, saw the need for better lighting at the scene and originated the first quartz halogen telescoping light. Out of his foresight an industry developed.
