Great Value LED bulbs now US assembled by GE, instead of Sylvania

Great Value LED bulbs now US assembled by GE, instead of Sylvania

When Sylvania announced the St Mary’s PA plant was going to close, I thought this was it for US manufacturing of general service lamps. Well, GE took the place of Sylvania for Walmart, much to my surprise. The bulbs look very similar to the Chinese made ones, but they have some traditional American GE hallmarks such as the same silica used in their incandescent bulbs since the 1980s. Hope this will keep going!

That's cool, hope they don't outsource.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Seems weird that they would brand these are Great Value when they are actually good quality GE made lamps. Most people would know Great Value as some cheap generic manufacturer that made lots of random stuff for Walmart!

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

Wonderful! I’m glad that Bucyrus OH plant is still alive and well. It’s a shame about Sylvania, but I am glad to see GE is making an effort to bring work back to the USA

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

Nice, you always seem to discover the new lamps first. I was just at Walmart, and I didn't notice any like this, though I was able to find some Sylvania-made Great Value with the small collars. If recall correctly, the Ledvance USA made lamps first showed up as Great Value, then under the Sylvania brand at Walmart, and finally under the Sylvania brand at other retailers. Maybe we'll see the same progression with these.

I went back to this Walmart and all the GE made GV LEDs sold out! Still plenty ot Sylvania made ones. I want to find some clear GE made ones before I return to California.
