Thomas Lighting as a brand is almost 100 years old, beginning its journey way back in 1919 as Moe Brothers Co., started by Henrick Moe, to manufacture light fixtures for residences. This company was acquired by Lee B. Thomas in 1948 and renamed to Thomas Industries in 1953. The company developed a strong reputation for high quality light fixtures design and manufacturing. The company’s emphasis on traditional styles added to its standing in the market. In the first decade of this century, Thomas Lighting has been acquired by Philips and is now a business unit of the renowned Philips group. Thomas Lighting has grown by constantly challenging itself to do things in their proper order in order to build a robust company which can give the planet and its people a brighter future.
Thomas Lighting now sees itself in a phase of growth which is self-sustainable. The growth is characterized by a fully integrated holistic approach in-built in its business model. The primary features of customer safety and protection of the environment all through the value chain have now become business fundamentals driven by the market. In conjunction with others, Thomas Lighting is building sustainability into its products and the manufacturing process. This sustainability is basic to the total Thomas Lighting value proposition, impacting not only business, but every consumer, all round the world. Thomas Lighting’s goal of sustainability spans all its operations — right from research and development to manufacturing and marketing.
This effort at sustainability transcends the traditional measure of reducing its footprint and includes goals that conjoin business growth directly to the development of safer and environmentally better products for its myriad markets all around the globe. While Thomas Lighting has made progress, it continually emphasizes its commitment to future developments by directing all efforts towards sustainable growth — not just as a distant utopia, but as an immediate reality for itself and all its stake-holders – its employees, customers and partners. It is this passion which reflects in each and every product presented by Thomas Lighting.
