In 2009, we at USA Tealight embarked on a quest for a seemingly simple item in the candle market: a quality domestic-made tealight candle. This search led to a realization that there was a huge tealight market, but that it was dominated almost entirely by low-quality, commodity-grade, pressed tealights imported from manufacturers in China, Vietnam and other overseas locations. An idea, and our company, was born.  


Our team has over 20 years of candle manufacturing experience, and we set out to create a state-of-the-art US manufacturing facility capable of filling the premium quality, “Made in USA” void in the tealight candle category.


USA Tealight was founded, and is still headquartered in Avenel, NJ. Working with expert engineers, we created a fully automated state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that utilizes the time-honored pouring method of producing tea lights. This process allows for production using only 100% wax, with no additives. The pouring process also allows us to create a stronger fragrance content and richer color formulations, the hallmarks of high quality consumer candles.


Leveraging years of experience, vendor and customer relationships, the USA Tealight brand was introduced to the market. Today, our products can be found in all markets: from mass retailer to supermarkets, from drug stores to restaurant suppliers, and more. USA Tealight is recognized as a premier US manufacturer of high quality tealight products.
