About M-Elec

We design innovative LED lighting products that electricians love.

Over the last decade, M-Elec has firmly established itself as one of the most respected and innovative light producers in Australia.

Founded in 2006, like many great companies M-Elec had humble beginnings. Operating from a small shed at the back of his family home on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Tim Mobbs quickly built a reputation for producing high quality, reliable LED packages mainly for the automotive industry but also for the hobby trade. After enrolling his father Geoff to design and produce an aluminium profile with an opaque diffuser, they began producing ground-breaking designs that offered a high lumen output coupled with low power consumption – the first in Australia. Not content with one first, M-Elec were quick to see the potential of the new wave of SMD chips and the higher lumen outputs that they provided and produced the first wide beam LED Downlight – the ML-D15.

Innovation has always been at the forefront of this family-run firm, as it continues to push the boundaries and continually challenge the status quo of traditional lighting products and techniques. Providing its ever-growing base of loyal customers – both domestic and commercial – with precisely what they need, this award-winning company has forged its success due to a winning combination of innovative designs, high-quality products and the ability to back it up with unrivalled customer service. M-Elec now boasts an in-house lighting design service, multiple warehouse facilities and a rapidly increasing network of stockists.

Proud of their origins, M-Elec will always stick to the core values that their success has been based on and one thing is certain – for this Australian success story with small business values but big business ambitions, the future is bright.
