Richard Martin Lighting was established in 1982 having recognised a need for moving lighting effects within television, which were not only innovative, but also capable of meeting the high safety standards required by the industry.

Due to the demand, RML set up a manufacturing company, researching and developing a new range of moving lighting effects, e.g. Cosmos Ball/Twist/Pillar, originally supplying these effects to the BBC.

In 1984 RML concentrated its efforts in the hire field, forming the company you know today. We offer an extensive range of the latest products at competitive prices and have the flexibility to meet your requirements, providing support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Since then RML have gone from strength to strength and now house over 5000 products in stock within their 3130 sq m premises and currently employ an expert team of operational, technical and administration staff. The installation of a Demonstration Room which simulates studio conditions, provides an effective, useable space to demonstrate new lighting products, their effects and design. 

Richard Martin Lighting provides hire of quality lights, control desks, cabling and professional lighting technicians to the industry.

Our in-house technical team proficiently service our extensive range of moving heads and LED lighting, ensuring RML hire quipment is constantly maintained and updated. With dedicated warehousing for products and spares you can be assured of fast response to your orders.

Electrical regulations specify that all electrical equipment is tested for electrical and mechanical safety at regular intervals, thus our technical team ensure all of our hire equipment is PAT tested as and when required.

The technical department works closely with our team of RML lighting technicians based in the television studios – ensuring we can turnaround equipment efficiently.
