Orion Lighting was founded in 1948 by Rudolf Molecz when he was a sales agent for electronic devices and materials. In 1953 his son, Leopold, joined the business and the name changed to reflect the family nature of this growing enterprise.

Employing over 250 people worldwide, they have established their own designs and reinforced their brand values. Their reputation for guaranteeing high quality products and delivering a professional service has not only secured them the trust of thousands of customers but it has also ensured they were awarded the license to carry the Austrian coat of arms by the Ministry for Economics and Labour.2017 saw their first targeted approach to the UK market via The Lumen Architect. The latest retail catalogue is identified as Kat 312.
Having a highly skilled workforce allows them to produce the majority of their products in house from raw materials to finished goods, including electro-plating and powder coating; ensuring their high quality standards are maintained whilst facilitating the quick turnaround required by their customers.
Orion produces the majority of it’s goods in Vienna and as such can offer a bespoke service using the thousands of standard parts they keep “on the shelf” for normal stock production. The variety of choices using these parts is almost infinite. A super example of the flexibility of options for a simple product is the Ball range.
All Orion lights built in Vienna are tested, quality inspected, packed complete and shipped with crystals already mounted, saving huge amounts of time on site and reducing installation damage!
