The Dietz family have produced hurricane lanterns ever since! From the 1920s to the 1960s R.E. Dietz was a supplier of lighting to the automotive industry. R.E. Dietz also produced the majority of road work warning lights.
In 1956 the Hong Kong office and production was established and in 1971 all production was moved to Hong Kong. In 1982 the Hong Kong factory was relocated to mainland China.
The hurricane lanterns by R. E. Dietz are used by sailors all over the World because of the good quality.
Unfortunately, in recent years, R.E. Dietz has had major supply problems. We apologize for all the trouble this has caused.
