Big Beam lights the way in Crystal Lake
CRYSTAL LAKE – Some time back in the 1940s or 1950s, somebody at U.C. Lite Manufacturing in Chicago – now Big Beam Emergency Systems Inc. of Crystal Lake – figured out a way to connect a couple lanterns and rig them to click on when the power goes out.
The idea might or might not have been original – the details have faded over time.
“There’s no one really to ask anymore,” said Steve Loria, Big Beam general manager. “But we were one of the first.”
