|Pilgrim Candle Co., Inc., a Massachusetts based
manufacturing company, opened its doors for business in 1992.
It was a humble one person operation tucked in the corner of
a turn of the century paper mill, currently known as the Mill
at Crane Pond.
It all began when our founder, Joe Shibley,
was given a layoff notice from the company he was employed.
Instead of interviewing in the job market, Joe spent most
of that first year in the library gathering information about
candle making and material suppliers. After eight months of
research, testing and setting up shop, Pilgrim Candle sold
its first candle. Since that first 85-cent sale, Pilgrim Candle
has developed a line of high quality scented candles that
are equal to the best candles in the industry.
Operating out of two factories,
Pilgrim Candle continues to manufacture thousands of candles
for both the wholesale and retail markets.
Pilgrim Candle welcomes wholesale accounts
and offers a variety of store displays. Go to Contact
Us to request more information on wholesale accounts.
