Since 1922


Mario Industries is one of the oldest family-owned lighting manufacturers in the United States, having been formed in 1922. It is located in the beautiful city of Roanoke, Virginia along side the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mario Contract Lighting, often referred to as MCL, manufactures lighting domestically as well as imported lighting for the hospitality industry. MCL prides ourselves on custom capabilities for guestroom and public area lighting.

A Family-owned Business

Through each generation we’ve seen growth and change. From Mario’s son (Vito) moving the company to Mount Vernon, NY, to his grandson Louis moving it to Roanoke, Virginia, to our relocation to a 100,000 square foot complete manufacturing facility, we’ve maintained our focus and commitment to Mario’s pledge.
