Mission & Vision
Jalite Inc, began in 2002 in Milford, Pennsylvania with the mission of becoming a premier supplier of high-performance photoluminescent safety signs and products in the U.S. emergency egress marketplace.
As the North American subsidiary of Jalite PLC, we are committed to providing superior service and support to our network of authorized dealers, to ensure that all customers fully realize the safety benefits inherent in next-generation photoluminescent products.
Our proprietary formula product line meets and/or exceeds the current needs of the architectural, building safety, and fire emergency system management communities for commercial/industrial/utility building and international maritime codified fire safety egress marking requirements.
As future codes are adopted, our management's contributing role in the development of international and U.S. safety marking standards ensures that Jalite will maintain its leadership in code compliant product offerings for greater safety, worldwide.
The JALITE International Group has its roots in Switzerland in the 1970's and pioneered the first safety way-guidance systems in the heart of the Swiss Alps for Civil Defense and Military installations. JALITE has continued to focus on its specialty niche of high-performance, consistent quality, photoluminescent safety products, and has been a prime driving force in the development of applications and for gaining their acceptance.
JALITE is synonymous with photoluminescence, often imitated and emulated. The JLUME Mark was registered in 1997 as the first JALITE Mark using "high-brightness - long decay" technology to meet the difficult requirements of the aviation industry and more recently for the UL 924 compliant products.
