Sperti PT9 Sun Valley sunlamp
the Sperti PT9 Sun Valley sunlamp was manufactured by the Sperti Sunlamp Division, Cooper Hewitt Electric Co., Fort Mitchell, Kentucky
SPERTI-SUNLAMP-KENTUCKY
In 1958 all production and assembly was
centralised in the former Cooper Hewitt
location at Hoboken, New Jersey. The
former Faraday assembly location at
Adrian, Michigan was sold. Between
1963 and 1965 the remainder of the
Faraday activities, together with the old
Cooper Hewitt location at Hoboken, were
sold and all sunlamp production, like that
of the Sperti PT9 Sun Valley sunlamp on
display here, was moved to Fort Mitchell,
Kentucky where manufacturing continued
under the name Sperti Sunlamp again.
Through the 1970s, and early 1980s,
Sperti Sunlamp enjoyed a dominant
position as a profitable supplier of
products to the home market. In addition
to high sales volumes and a record of
profitability, Sperti Sunlamp's customer
list included the top 3 catalogue sales
organisations in North America (Service
Merchandise, Sears, and J.C. Penney).
