About Us


Unilite is a family owned business which was established in 1981 as a portable lighting supplier and has rapidly grown to become one of the world’s leading torch & flashlight manufacturers. Started by Bryan & Maureen Insley from their garage in Solihull/England with £800 to the business's name, the company grew quickly to become a firm fixture in the UK market. Still family owned, Unilite now exports to over 30 countries worldwide and is fast becoming the favoured brand for customers all over the globe. Our motto LIGHTS-BUILT-TOUGH is embedded in our DNA and is still what drives us today to ensure we meet the highest standards that our customers demand.



38 years of trading, and a wealth of experience dealing with a wide and diverse spectrum of businesses, many of whom are from specialised professional Industries. Our foundations have been built on superior quality and a first-class customer service experience. This has allowed Unilite to expand and develop staunch support from our trusted 4,000 worldwide clients. High spec components and carefully crafted designs are always at the forefront of our thinking, with customer satisfaction our main priority. 

To accommodate this further development and expansion, our manufacturing partners have increased factory capacity from 259,000 sq. ft. to 420,000 sq. ft. in late 2009. The new manufacturing complex now houses 1,650-strong skilled employees, using only the latest cutting edge technology.

Large investments in R&D, machinery and production facilities have allowed Unilite to innovate & pioneer new breakthroughs. This includes Focus Control technology, Infrared motion sensor activation, Electronic Dimming Configuration and High spec thermal management systems. That is why Unilite is the proven choice for the true industry professional.
