Star Signal Vehicle Products
Star Headlight and Lantern Co,. Inc. was founded in 1889 by five founding owners. Four months later, George Washington Jacobs bought the sole controlling interest. Since then, the company has maintained production in Rochester NY and its vicinity with the current headquarters and manufacturing center in Avon, New York. The Jacobs family has guided the company through four generations of leadership to become a leader in the rail, amber light and emergency lighting markets.
In February of 2000 STAR very proud to acquire the Signal Vehicle Products brand name and its assets. Established in 1974, Signal Vehicle Products is a leader in the police/fire emergency vehicle products industry, and its product line will provide extensive, value-added synergy to our own warning systems product offering. The entire SVP operation has been moved to New York from Florida so that we can take full advantage of our technology and advanced manufacturing capabilities.
