Mobern Lighting Company

Established in 1944, Mobern Lighting Company has been a venerable designer/manufacturer of a wide range of industrial/commercial state of the art, energy efficient lighting fixtures and solutions in Howard County, Maryland since 1957.  Mobern is an approved preferred fixture supplier under the local BGE and PEPCO utility rebate programs.

Presently located in a 140,000 sq. ft. plant on Route 1 in Laurel, Mobern has doubled its workforce and increased sales by over 100% over the course of the last eighteen (18) months. In fact, Mobern received and Economic Development Award for its economic impact on the local economy from the Howard County Economic Development Authority. This growth is mainly attributable to local projects involving Maryland institutions, government agencies (federal and state) and commercial/industrial building owners, alike. As older buildings surrounding the Maryland-DC region are evaluated and slated for retro-fit, the demand for Mobern's products and services forever increase.  Recently, Mobern identified and supplied energy efficient lighting solutions to the Maryland Sports Authority (Camden Yards), Prince George's County School System, BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, Howard County Government, National Institute of Science and Technology, Naval Observatory Library, NSA, DOT (MV Cape Washington), Bureau of Engraving, Bethesda Naval Hospital, Ft. Meade, Aberdeen Proving Grounds and Ft. Detrick.  Each of these projects offered unique challenges for Mobern and at end of product installation very satisfied customers.  Every day Mobern is given a new and unique opportunity to supply its products because of its in-house design and engineering capabilities and flexible manufacturing operations which, when combined to address end-user requirements, yield energy efficient lighting solutions in a timely and cost-effective way.
