ABOUT PRINCETON TEC

Princeton Tec is a family owned and operated manufacturer that is passionately committed to providing leading-edge soldier systems solutions and equipment for mission critical military and tactical use worldwide. Our integrated, modular equipment is engineered to answer the needs of modern operators. The commitment and dedication to the success and safety of the end users of our products inspires a passionate and energetic work environment. It binds Princeton Tec together as a unit that moves as one and makes Princeton Tec a truly unique and dynamic team.

In 1975 our founder, Bill Stephens, left his job as an engineer to carve his own way. Bill, an avid scuba diver, began to design and build products to keep scuba divers safe underwater. Shortly after starting Princeton Tec, Bill began building dive lights and the company grew from there. Additional divisions were added beyond dive (outdoor, industrial and tactical) but the main goal stays the same: produce high quality, intuitively designed products to help keep people safe while they work or pursue their passions. Princeton Tec has continued to do this, all while remaining family owned and operated, keeping manufacturing in the United States, and employing a local workforce.

We first supplied the U.S. military with underwater strobe lights for Navy SEAL training swims. In the early 2000’s we introduced the Quad Tactical and EOS Tactical headlamp to fit the needs of the U.S. military. Shortly after we began to design our MPLS lights, designed specifically for tactical users. Today, we create both standard and custom products for law enforcement, first responders, military and other everyday heroes. From MPLS task lights to compact headlamps, these lights need to perform in even the most demanding environments – every single time. We take pride in serving the people who make our world a safer place.
