About Us:GE Lighting: Bringing the Future to Light
We started with the light bulb, an invention that fulfilled the basic human desire to see and experience more of the world. Today, light still delivers on that promise. But, it does so much more.
At GE Lighting, we're not just reinventing the light bulb. We're reinventing the productivity, wellness and security that comes with it. We're extending beyond the bulb to access new markets, we're scaling smart and we're leading in a world where lighting drives value in our homes from the socket to the switch to the smart phone...and the cloud in between.
Our innovators think bigger and bolder to deliver for our customers and transform spaces no one else has, and we're using that grit to lead into the next 130 years, where new outcomes and opportunities are robust...yet still as simple as screwing in a light bulb.
