The Los Angeles Business Journal has named Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced lighting systems and virtually indestructible cases, to its list of Los Angeles County's Fastest Growing Private Companies.
Ranking #25 in Los Angeles County overall and second in the $100+ Million revenue category, Pelican was recently featured in Congresswoman Jane Harman's "State of the Region" speech as a shining example of how manufacturing is alive and well in California.
