The beginnings of this company have a pretty unique history. According to their website, in 1893, Thomas Edison unveiled his incandescent light bulb at the Columbian Exposition. That summer, Edison and a crew of several hundred men constructed a network of over 92,000 incandescent lamps that lit up the shores of Lake Michigan. Working with Thomas Edison that evening was a young Irish Immigrant named Samuel Suffrin Garvin! Shortly after, Sam Garvin & Company was founded and became known as Chicago’s premier electrical manufacturer.
