MARINA, Calif. (BRAIN) — Lighting company Light & Motion will be featured in an upcoming episode of the Discovery Channel show How It's Made.

The How It's Made crew has been filming at Light & Motion's new factory in Marina, Calif., documenting the manufacturing and assembly of the LED-based Seca and Vis360 bike lights, the Bluefin G-30 underwater camera housing, and the company's flagship dive light, the Sola 1200.

Light & Motion will be featured in three segments of the show scheduled to air late this year.

"Our teams are very proud of the products they build, and now we can show the world how we do flow manufacturing," said Daniel Emerson, CEO of Light & Motion. "We are honored to be recognized by the Discovery Channel for our innovative, U.S.-based manufacturing."

Light & Motion has been designing and building lighting systems in the Monterey area since 1990. Earlier this year the company moved out of its longtime base on Monterey's Cannery Row to a new 28,000-square-foot facility ten miles away.

"Manufacturing in the USA is integral to our core company values and mission," said Emerson. "Building the product ourselves, in an integrated environment where the engineering, customer service, sales, and manufacturing staff work in sight of each other, provides product integrity, a key principle for Light & Motion. We don't believe we can effectively live this vision if we let someone else build our product."
