Ushio has built up a good reputation for making stage and studio lighting for the entertainment industry. Of course, when you get to know the products they make, you start to realize that this is only a tiny piece of the large assortment of light bulbs created by USHIO.
Stage and studio lights are used in theaters, on stages, and in commercial buildings all over the world. Since no general manufacturer of bulbs could focus in on this area, it was fertile ground for a company like USHIO to make its mark on the lighting industry. They started doing so in 1967 and are still the leaders today. Chances are excellent that your local theater has been using stage light bulbs from this company for decades.
Other types of light bulbs they manufacture are miniature bulbs, aquarium bulbs, and all of the normal lines of light bulbs available from more expensive brands. You can use USHIO for your straight tube fluorescent bulbs, common to shop lights, office lighting, and many warehouses and production floors. Metal Halides and High Pressure Sodium bulbs are available, too, as well as cutting edge LED lights and energy saving CFL (compact fluorescent) light bulbs. They have now become a one-stop-shop for hundreds of different styles of bulbs, providing an affordable way to outfit your business or home with the lighting you need.
USHIO operates manufacturing facilities in Japan, North America, Asia, and Europe, taking advantage of expertise from all over the globe; all to make sure the product they provide are reliable, affordable, and as energy efficient as they can possibly be. The president of USHIO America, Inc. himself said "it has been [in our] charter to provide customers with unrivaled customer service." It's a commitment right from the top, because they realize that it's the only way to be the company the world chooses for their lighting needs.
