Hollywood Entertainment Company Moves to San Fernando Valley

Los Angeles, CA, July 03, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Mole-Richardson Co., the leader in Entertainment Industry lighting for the last 88 years, is moving its operations from its Hollywood home to the Northern San Fernando Valley. Mole is constructing a state-of-the-art production, distribution and administration facility at 12154 Montague in Pacoima, CA. Mole anticipates moving into their newly renovated building in late August 2015.

In a prepared statement CEO Michael Parker remarked, "As Mole-Richardson has continued to grow, we recognized a need to unite our team in a space that both celebrates our history and sets us up for the continued growth we are anticipating. This investment shows the commitment the Parker family has to the continued success of the company."

The centerpiece of Mole's new headquarters will be a 10,000 square foot suite of corporate offices, conference rooms, casual workspaces, showrooms, and a museum. To celebrate Mole's indelible innovation and contribution to Hollywood, the museum will showcase the company's product evolution and celebrate "Old Hollywood."

Attached to the administration building will be the heart of Mole-Richardson's manufacturing, wholesale & retail expendable distribution business (Studio Depot), equipment rental operations and finally the Larry Mole Parker Technical Institute. In total the new location will entail over 120,000 square feet.

Calvert Architectural Group was tasked to create Mole’s new home with H. Hendy & Associates designing the administration building and interior offices. Norm Wilson & Sons were general contractors and the overall project was managed by John Barry & Associates.

About Mole:
Mole-Richardson Co. was founded in 1927 by electrical engineer Peter Mole, design engineer Elmer C. Richardson, and chief studio electrician Fielding C. Coates. Starting from a machine shop in the rear of a garage on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, Mole-Richardson immediately became the leader in incandescent lighting. Mole has published many articles on lighting for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Science, the American Society of Cinematographers as well as the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences has also awarded Mole the Certificates of Honorable Mention four times for their innovative work in Entertainment lighting. The company is and has always been known as the technological leader in Entertainment lighting.
