We are Lexington Lighting, LLC, created by the 2013 buy-out and merger of Wilshire Manufacturing in Taunton, MA and Vantage Lighting in Plainfield, CT. We are breathing new life into a traditional industry, featuring innovative LED lighting products that are capturing increasing market share.

As the successful candidate for this new position of Controller, you will report directly to our part-time CFO, Brad Howe. Your challenge, in addition to handling all of the responsibilities described above, will be to complete the integration of the two companies, establishing efficient systems and procedures that provide feedback to the floor and to the sales team concerning product costs, margin, sales trending, and so on.
