I would think the combined demand would be enough to keep the remaining plant open, even if at reduced production?

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

Hey, Silverliner, where did you get this pair? I want to get a pair myself before the plant shuts down.

-Date decoder of most US lamps 1960-present.

-Collects all types of lights.

I'll save any vintage lamp... dead or alive! Smiley

@fluorescent lover 40 I got this at DIY Home Center. You're in the Inland Empire. I know Ganahl Lumber sells Sylvania bulbs, the closest location to you is in Corona, CA. Or I can just get you a pair and give to you when we meet up.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Get'em while you can. After Versailles, quality is a BIG question mark!

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

@jercar954, yeah. A big question mark! At least hopefully Philips will make them for Ledvance in the USA.

That’s such a shame! I’ve almost always thought of Sylvania fluorescents being American made. I hope the quality is maintained if these are outsourced.

That’s interesting that Philips could acquire the Ledvance name, too. I guess Philips would continue production in Salina, KS with Ledvance sponsorship/ownership. Sylvania did the same thing with its incandescents and halogens made in the St. Marys, PA plant.

On a side note, Versailles, KY is also home to one of my favorite whiskey distilleries.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

I actually don't mind if Philips takes over production. Philips now is the best quality you'll find of the big 3 nowadays. Interesting that this pair in the picture is 2150 lumens? I bought a pair of USA lamps just like these and they are 2500Lumens ? The 34w cases here are the ones that are 2150 lumens now

I always thought GE was the best for modern lamps (at least for F32T8 lamps). In 2016 (I guess alot can change in 3 years though) I bought a pair of GE active spaces F32T8's. The tubes are of good quality I have them on for at least 6-8 hours a day and the ends are still good with only slight blackening. On the other hand I do not have a lot of experience with linear tubes so I don't really know.

I wasnt thinking of F32s but in T8 the GE Ecolux ones were the best, not sure how the current ones are though

Are these 2500 lumens in the USA yet? Or is that only for the ones exported to Canada?

Have you seen any changes in the lumens for the 3000 K and the 5000K lamps ? The 5000K ones are allegedly getting bumped to 2400L or 2900L according to Canadian tire website but I still haven't seen any of those lamps yet

Yes the 5000K ones are now rated at 2400 lumens. Have yet to see the USA made /930s and /941s.
