The Thomas Lighting brand dates back to 1919, when Henrick Moe founded Moe Brothers Co. to manufacture residential lighting fixtures. Lee B. Thomas acquired Moe Brothers Co. in 1948 and, in 1953, changed the company name to Thomas Industries. The company developed a nationwide reputation as a designer and manufacturer of high quality lighting fixtures, with a special emphasis on traditional styles. In 2016, Thomas Lighting was acquired by Elk Group International, a leading manufacturer of decorative lighting and home d├ęcor products. An award winning team of international designers and engineers ensure that each product is created with uncompromising detail and unparalleled design.
