Our History

Robert Abbey has been designing and manufacturing fine lighting products since 1948. Our design studios, corporate offices and 350,000 square foot factory are located on a 22 acre campus in the picturesque foothills of North Carolina.  Much of our extensive product line is entirely Made in the U.S.A.

Robert Abbey is a family focused business – quite a few of our team members are 3rd generation Robert Abbey employees. It’s not uncommon to find three (sometimes 4) generations of family and team members on hand at our offices and plant in Hickory.

Headley, our first company dogAt Robert Abbey, we have created a welcoming environment for everybody, including their dogs, if they wish. Our first dog, Headley, was the first company dog (that we know of) to have his own web page, in the early 90’s. Since Headley, many others have followed, but the Headster set the trend for man’s best friend in the workplace.
