The Titusville, FL-based company celebrated 2013's record growth with this honor from Spacecoast Business Magazine.
Barn Light Electric was named the 2013 Business Leader of the Year for Manufacturing by Spacecoast Business Magazine.
Owners Bryan and Donna Scott left their professional careers in 2008 to run their fledgling business full time with the dream of reviving the art of manufacturing porcelain enamel lighting. In August 2012, the Scotts saw their dream come true when the first fixtures came rolling out of the porcelain oven they purchased in Italy and assembled in their manufacturing facility in Mims. Barn Light Electric is the only company in America manufacturing porcelain enamel lighting, which is desirable for its high-gloss finish that will never fade or corrode even when used outdoors.
Recognized for its quality, American-made products by numerous organizations including the Martha Stewart American Made Awards, Barn Light was featured this year by both CNN and CNBC in stories focusing on how the Scotts turned their one-time hobby into a successful business.
The outlook for next year is continued growth with a new manufacturing facility, opened in October, running at full speed to fill orders from homeowners, architects, designers, builders, and commercial business owners.
