iluminar announced that January 2019 signifies a decade in business. Ten years ago, Eddie Reynolds and Joni Hamasaki came together to launch iluminar with a mission to supply high-quality and reliable lighting and license plate recognition products to the video surveillance market, backed by unsurpassed customer service.
According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics’ Business Employment Dynamics report, less than one-third of all small businesses make it to the 10-year mark. As such, it is an immense accomplishment for iluminar to reach this milestone thriving with products deployed on every continent.
“iluminar is beyond grateful for all of our partners and clients who have continued to support us for the last decade,” said Eddie Reynolds, iluminar CEO, and co-founder.
“In 1966, Marie Van Brittan Brown designed the CCTV system that we know today. It is wonderful to be able to continue the legacy as a black woman owned manufacturer, since a black woman invented the CCTV business.”
As a global specialty manufacturer and supplier of infrared and white light illuminators, iluminar has come into its own as a leading voice in the security industry. From deploying award-winning products that have been part of major city surveillance applications in Abu Dhabi, Macau, and Australia, to forging partnerships with Altronix, Arecont Vision, Pelco, and Milestone – to name a few iluminar continues to pave its path to success for the future.
iluminar is a specialist manufacturer and supplier of infrared (IR) and white light illuminators and license plate recognition products. Co-owners Eddie Reynolds and Joni Hamasaki bring over 30 years of combined industry experience.
