SYLVANIA traces its roots back to 1901, when young entrepreneur Frank Poor became a partner in a small company in Middleton, Massachusetts, that renewed burned-out light bulbs. The company would buy an old bulb for a few cents, cut off the glass tip, replace the filament, and reseal the bulb. Poor soon moved the business to Danvers, bought out his partner, and called his new company Bay State Lamp Company. His brothers soon joined him in the enterprise.
In recent decades, SYLVANIA has developed lighting products with longer life, better light and greater energy efficiency.
