Known for its innovation, product quality and design, Garrity offers some of the most technically advanced flashlights on the market and has strong retail distribution for its products. Garrity is a leading flashlight brand in North America. The Garrity product portfolio includes a broad range of flashlights. It was founded in 1967 by Chairman and CEO Paul Garrity. As a leader in the lighting category, Garrity will bring innovative products, an experienced management team and strong distribution to the Duracell business.
Two years after the company’s founding, in 1969, Garrity® introduced the LifeLite®, the first disposable flashlight. This light has been a favorite across the world serving fire and rescue workers, military personnel, and homes. It was used in Operation Desert Storm, at the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, at Ground Zero of the World Trade Center tragedy in New York in 2001, and in those areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Garrity Industries, Inc. was acquired by Duracell, a Procter & Gamble Company, in 2006. Subsequently, Duracell was acquired by Berkshire Hathaway in early 2016. We supply Garrity® products to numerous retailers across the country. We are now able to offer Garrity® flashlights and portable lighting products on Duracelldirect.com. We look forward to providing our customers with lights that they can trust.
