Lighthouse Background & Mission Statement
Lighthouse Technical Sales, LLC was founded in March 2004 and is a successor company to Harman Associates, Inc. (Harman was a Boston MA based sales rep company, founded by Harold Feinman, 1961-2004. Harold was Larry's mentor.) Larry Knight formed Lighthouse in 2004 by completing the acquisition of Harman Associate’s assets.
Lighthouse supports the New England: Mil-Aero, Shipboard, Telecom, Harsh-Industrial Environment, Broadcast, Commercial and Medical Markets. Lighthouse sells Active, Passive and Electro-Mechanical products both OEM direct and through our principal's distribution-partner network.
In 2010, Lighthouse purchased and moved into our current 3,800 square foot office, located in Nashua's historic Lake Street Mill Complex. Lighthouse renovated this unit into: multiple offices, a 24' x 15' company conference/product training room, a principal product display area, a Platt carry-shipping case storage room and an automated prototype foam cutting workshop. The office was also renovated to replicate the woven-belt, metal drive-shaft and pulley shoe factory manufacturing floor that existed in the building 90 years ago. There are multiple historic industrial displays and "antique" pieces of shoe machinery on display.
