HISTORY

Jonas “JB” Bellovin, who designed and manufactured lighting equipment for the Armed Forces during World War II, founded LEGION Lighting Company in 1946. Both the new firm and the fluorescent industry grew rapidly.

By 1957. LEGION had moved to its current site, which has expanded several times, where over 65,000 square feet are devoted to the design and manufacture of Architecturally Engineered Energy Efficient Fluorescent Lighting Equipment. A third generation family business, the company remains committed to the standard of excellence our founder set in 1946. 

With a long tradition of environmental and social concerns, LEGION consistently strives to use less energy without sacrificing the level of illumination a particular task requires. Inside our facility, a recycling program benefits the surrounding community. 

The company philosophy, which reflects our founder’s belief, continues ever so more today with our responsiveness to adaptability, flexibility and an emphasis on customer service.
