Welcome to Montclair Light Works!

We are Bill and Betsy Brown, a couple of lighting professionals that found ourselves out of work during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Freshly unemployed and still thinking of lighting in our sleep, (combined we have a total of 60 years in the lighting manufacturing business), it was time to pause, like most of the world.  

We both have an immense passion for the lighting industry we have grown up in. We decided if we could partner with a US manufacturer, we could design and build task lighting while living in Vermont, and service lighting professionals and consumers direct through a web presence.  We were fortunate to find a manufacturing partner who has been producing high quality, commercial grade lighting products for 35 years in Southern California.  In discussions, we all recognized the potential to leverage our mutual expertise and create a new task-lighting line geared to the consumer residential and hospitality markets.  The idea for Montclair Light Works was hatched.

Montclair Light Works was born out of Zoom meetings and emails due to pandemic travel restrictions. Bill and I have a long history in the picture light and portable task lighting business, our partners specialize in RLM metal spinning, so it was natural that we would continue to design and build metal-shaded task lighting. We have spent the last year designing and building our first product lines and this website, under the supervision of our year-old pandemic pup, the not-so-mighty, but-oh-so-cute, Monty the black lab.
