THE STIFFEL LAMP COMPANY HISTORY
The Stiffel Lamp Company was founded in 1932, in Chicago, Illinois by Ted Stiffel. A talented craftsman, Ted Stiffel had a background in fine arts that gave him a unique ability to design innovative and intelligently crafted lamps, which were also beautiful to behold.
Stiffel’s dedication to excellence established the company as the industry leader in quality.
During World War II, the company opened up a screw machine department and produced hundreds of thousands of bolts for anti-aircraft guns and other essential components for the war effort. In 1945, after V-J Day, when most government contracts were withdrawn, Stiffel went back to what it did best, making the highest quality metal lamps.
Over the years Stiffel Lamp has contributed a myriad of accomplishments to the lamp industry, including the invention of the patented Stiffel Switch, the pole lamp and unparalleled accomplishments in design.
Today that tradition continues with caring and enthusiastic employees, all of whom work towards one common and rare goal – excellence.
Proudly all of our products are still made in America, at our 40,000 square foot facility in Linden, NJ.
If you take pride in possessing the unusual as well as the finest, then Stiffel should be your choice in lamps. Precise craftsmanship and magnificent design combine to make Stiffel Lamps the world’s finest.
