About

Lighting Up the Water Since 1981

UTEC, INC was founded in Salina, KS by Tom Payne and Ernie Schmidt in 1981 who were determined to change the concept of fishing using underwater lights. We knew there had to be a better solution for attracting fish to your boat or dock other than hanging a lantern over the side of the boat or fishing with headlight bulbs surrounded by foam that bobbed up and down on top of the water. This determination lead to our first patented “Starfire II” Underwater Halogen Fishing Light which sold nationwide and has been the cornerstone of our business for the past 40 years.  Payne later formed Fishing Lights Etc., LLC in Hays, KS where a large variety of Marine Lighting products are now designed and manufactured.

Leading the Way Through Refined Innovation

AlumiGlo Fishing Lights Logo Light Technology Innovator

While the advent of our Starfire Underwater Halogen light changed the way fisherman caught fish for over 40 years, the lighting industry once again started to change with the introduction of high intensity LEDs. In 2010, we designed and patented our first underwater LED fishing lights which again revolutionized the fishing industry and opened the doors to new lighting possibilities.

Since that time, we have established ourselves as one of the leaders in Marine LED Lighting with our AlumiGlo Lighting Products. Our lights use the latest and most advanced LED technology available and are constructed using patented, high-grade aluminum housings and stainless-steel hardware.

Driven by Dedication

Our mission at AlumiGlo Lighting is continuing to provide our customers with the latest LED technology for the absolute best value. We are dedicated to our customers and their complete satisfaction and always welcome any questions or feedback you may have.
