TRENTON, N.J. - (August 2, 2002): Tektite Manufacturing announced today the launch of a new flashlight product for the airline industry... the Excursion Pro™ - 19 LED aluminum flashlight. The Excursion Pro™ was designed to meet the harsh demands of any emergency imaginable with features that separate it from anything else available.
"In the process of engineering a flashlight that would exceed FAA requirements, we decided to take it a few steps further and develop the most durable flashlight in the world", explains Scott A. Mele, president of Tektite Industries. "Our mission is to be the portable lighting brand of choice for industry," continues Mr. Mele.
The Excursion Pro™ utilizes 3 D cell batteries offering more than 10 times the battery life of regular incandescent flashlights. This is done in part through Tektite's patented LED circuitry. The LED lamps offer more than 10,000 hours of continuous life and are virtually impossible to break even in the most rugged use. Each flashlight is computer-machined from a solid bar of aircraft aluminum maximizing strength while double O-ring seals give it an underwater depth rating to 1,000 feet.
"The trend we're seeing is that people are less concerned about price and more concerned about not cutting corners in emergency and safety applications. It's simply hard to put a price on feeling secure", comments, Richard Saint Cyr, vice president of Tektite Industries.
