The company manufactured Electric Engines, Electric Motors and Electric Starters for early automobiles. They also made electric lights and many other electric related products. In 1909, Wagner Electric started manufacturing their first automotive headlamp bulbs. Today, under the Wagner Lighting name, some of their brands include BriteLite, HalogenGold and LazerBlue.
