Behind the Scenes | Quality Control Team Keeps Close Eye on Thousands of Parts
With a practiced touch, Pam runs her fingers around the rim of a large, aluminum light shade. She’s feeling, and looking, for any imperfections in the piece before sending it on to inventory. Pam has worked in quality control for more than 15 years; the last five with Barn Light Electric. “We check the raw parts as they come out of the machine shop,” Pam explains. “We’re looking for dents or imperfections, and we check that the rims are closed. We also measure to make sure the dimensions are correct and the holes are the right size.” ... Read More

Happy Anniversary! Celebrating 10 Years of Vintage-Inspired Craftsmanship
Barn Light Electric is celebrating 10 years of handcrafting the finest lighting on the planet! Just as it took a fair amount of imagination to launch a Tesla into space this week, it took imagination, ingenuity, and a whole lot of hard work to launch a lighting company in the midst of the Great Recession on Florida’s Space Coast. “It started with a love for industrial-style antique lighting and grew into a passion for bringing them back onto the market,” owner Bryan Scott says. “The handcrafting of high-quality lighting, especially porcelain enamel lighting, was a lost art.” ...

Behind the Scenes | The Final Stop Before Your Door
As we wrap up our celebration of National Manufacturing Month, our final stop is the Shipping Department. After our metal spinners, painters, and assemblers complete their handiwork in crafting your new American-made lighting, it needs to leave our Florida facility and find its way safely to your door whether you live in Orlando, Ontario, or Okinawa. And while Shipping is the last stop in the process, it’s a vital component of our overall manufacturing operation. Our goal is for your lights to be packaged well enough to keep them protected during transit while being as earth-friendly as possible with our packing materials. ... Read More

Behind the Scenes | Pulling it All Together in Assembly
As we continue our celebration of Manufacturing Month here at Barn Light, we’ve been offering a peek at the amazing craftsmanship, dedication to detail, and plain hard work that happens here every single day. You saw where the process starts in the Machine Shop, and, last week, we featured our finish crews who specialize in porcelain enamel, powder coat, and natural finishes. Once all the pieces of a barn light are manufactured, they wind up in our Assembly Department where talented hands put the puzzle together. With all of the customizing options available for our lighting, it’s up to the Assembly crew to make sure each light is built to the... Read More
