Bulbrite began in 1971 with Andrew Choi, drawing on his previous experience in the lighting trade, selling light bulbs door to door in the Bowery section of New York City. Since then, Andrew, his wife Barbara, their children (Cathy, Dorothy and Eric) and their uncle John, have worked to build Bulbrite Industries to be a leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative, energy-efficient light source solutions.
Bulbrite and the Choi family have and continue to demonstrate their family values and commitment to education and the local community in a variety of ways including:
- Opened their first educational training center in Dallas, TX and in 2015, the first West Coast Distribution Center in California.
- Created a Build-A-Bike annual program to benefit local children.
- Work closely with the South Bergen Rotary to connect with local community children and families in need.
“It is an honor to have our family business recognized by our community,” said Cathy Choi, President of Bulbrite. “We are steadfast in our commitment to innovate, educate and exceed expectations in all products that we produce and in everything we do as part of the community.”
