Category: About


Our manufacturing division of RLE manufactures a complete line of energy efficient fluorescent, HID, and LED fixtures including recessed, surface, steel and aluminum linear; direct/indirect, vandal resistant, task, and vapor tight lighting. Robert Lighting fixtures and the product support that lighting specifiers depend upon, is available through our headquarters staff and a highly responsive national sales agent group located throughout the US.


Saying you offer a short run capability to make product modifications to seal a deal is one step. Actually doing it for thousands of satisfied customers is the primary reason we not only “still exist” but continue to prosper. Since 1944, Robert Lighting has been known to architects, specifiers, facility managers and others for being there when others just can’t keep their commitments.


Our customers have direct involvement in many aspects of the specification, project design and installation of lighting products. As a vertically integrated lighting provider we see your projects the same way you see them – from having to make it all fit together and perform as anticipated. Not only do we make and modify fixtures, but our engineers work directly with our customers to create the project plan, and are even happy to “get our hands dirty” during installation.


The expertise you need on your projects will not come from a monolithic, multi-national fixture supplier that is levels removed from the field. RLE is you!
