GRANDVIEW, Mo. –Peterson Manufacturing Company, known locally as the “Quiet Giant” in the Kansas City suburb of Grandview, is celebrating its 65th year of business.
Starting out as a tiny, retail-oriented manufacturer in 1945, Peterson has evolved into a quarter-billion-dollar corporation servicing millions of customers with its safety lighting products worldwide.
Today, the family-owned company is headquartered on a 44-acre corporate campus in a 670,000-sq.-ft. facility housing all departments of Peterson’s operations.
“We’re proud to be celebrating our 65th anniversary,” said Peterson president and CEO, Don Armacost, Jr.
“While much has changed here, one thing that hasn’t is a tradition of square dealing that my father established in the early days. It’s brought this company a long way, and will continue to guide our relations with customers, suppliers and employees as we move ahead.”
As one of the top three safety lighting manufacturers in the US, Peterson currently offers a line of more than 2,200 lighting-related products.
