Our Story

Hamsar originated with the entrepreneurial spirit of the President, Fred Kelly to create his own company more than 30 years ago. From a humble beginning starting out in his garage to now one of the world’s leaders in lighting and technology, the company still reflects his attitude and commitment to innovation and customer service today.

Hamsar has grown to be a world leader in designing and manufacturing custom lighting and electronic solutions for various vehicle and industrial end markets. Hamsar’s design and manufacturing capabilities include heavy duty LED work lamps, LED CHMSLs, back up alarms, interior industrial vehicle lighting and specialty vehicle auxiliary lighting.
