A Short History of Maglite Flashlights

Where did the term “Maglite®” come from?

If you guessed number 3, you are right.

Maglite Flashlights were invented in 1979 by Anthony Maglica in California, USA. Here is a brief timeline of Anthony and Maglite®.

Mr. Maglica was born in NYC during the depression, but raised in Croatia, his mother’s country of origin.
