Originally founded in the 1920s in the United States, Noma was the largest manufacturer of holiday lighting in the world. In 1965 however, Noma had to file for bankruptcy as the company faced increasing competition from cheaper manufacturers. Since 1967 Noma exists only as a licensed trademark, owned today by Inliten, LLC.
Established in 1939 by Fred Capel, Noma’s UK branch is still in business, making it the oldest supplier of holiday lights in the world. It is the biggest supplier of holiday lights in the UK. Noma introduced a number of innovations to holiday lighting, including: parallel-wired light sets, all-rubber cords, Bubble Lites and fused safety plugs.
