|BE was formed as a division of Buhl Industries in 1985 with the purchase of the halogen and HID product line of Lamp holders from General Electric. Initially General Electric maintained B.E. as its sole supplier of Halogen and HID lamp holders allowing significant growth in the domestic and international markets. GE decided to drop lamp holders from their product mix and passed the customer base to Buhl Electric which allowed the brand to develop a presence in the industry for quality, design and supply chain fulfillment.
|As the company grew, cooperative relationships to supply new lamp holder designs were developed with the major lamp manufacturers such as Osram, Sylvania, GE and others. In addition product expansion into Fluorescent, Compact Fluorescent and Incandescent was achieved by partnerships with Asian manufacturers to offer a complete range of lamp holder products and accessories. |
In 2003 Buhl Industries was purchased by Vcom IMC allowing added corporate depth to move forward on expansion, by acquisition and new product group development. One of these new product brands "Buhlite" is a patented line of "Energy Star" compatible lighting product for stage, studio and digital photography. Over the past 30 years high standards of quality and customer service has never wavered and is evidenced in Buhl Electrics continuing commitment to the Lighting industry.
