Every flashlight produced by Mag Instrument, Inc. (Maglite®) reflects one man’s unwavering commitment to product quality and to maintaining manufacturing jobs in America.

Anthony Maglica, a staunch advocate of free enterprise and U.S.-based manufacturing, is the president of Mag Instrument, Inc. and the inventor of the iconic MAGLITE® flashlight, a symbol of classic American design.

With only his talent, determination, and a strong work ethic, Tony Maglica set out to achieve the American Dream when he founded Mag Instrument in 1955. By designing and manufacturing a product that transformed an industry, he fully realized that dream. Mr. Maglica’s continuous pursuit of innovative technology, superior products, design excellence, and exceptional customer service has not only created global demand for his company’s products but also, he believes, offers a model for other American companies to generate worldwide demand for their products while preserving American manufacturing jobs.

The Maglite ® and Mini Maglite ® flashlights have been recognized as “A Work of Art That Works®” by the Japan Institute of Design and the Museum for Applied Art in Germany. Fortune and Money magazines listed Mag Instrument® products among the top 100 products made in America. In 1996, the Wall Street Journal called the Maglite ® flashlight “the Cadillac of flashlights” and quoted then-CEO of Apple Computer, Gilbert F. Amelio, who aspired for Apple to be “essentially the Maglite® of computers”.
