who we are
For over 5 decades, Bruce Aerospace has designed and manufactured cabin lighting, exterior lighting, emergency lighting, escape path lighting systems, and illuminated signs including exit and information signs for all commercial aircraft.
We offer state-of-the art safety solutions, patented “mood lighting” systems. We specialize in cost-saving retrofit systems and offer full after-market support. Our in-house engineering expertise combined with diverse manufacturing capabilities and FAA DER/DMIR staff simplifies the certification and implementation process of new lighting solutions.
Bruce Industries was founded in 1956. Originally incorporated in Southern California, continual growth of the company dictated a major expansion of facilities not possible at the existing site. This exploration of alternative locations resulted in the selection of an industrial site in Northwestern Nevada. The company was established as a Nevada Corporation in 1986 preceding the 1987 relocation of operations. In August of 2007, Bruce Industries was purchased by Transdigm Group, Inc., at which time our name changed to Bruce Aerospace. Bruce Aerospace’s operations remain at our Nevada facility.
