In 1976 above a bar in Monroeville, Gene LaFace and Harry McGovern started this successful enterprise. Now with 50 employees and sales of $62 million, in addition to the main office at 5330 Enterprise Blvd. Bethel Park, they have locations in Altoona and Huntington, WV. Prinicipals of the company now include Harry McGovern as well as Jim Mullett, Craig Lockwood, Tim Leonard and Brian Miedel. In our minds, their office manager, Steve Barczyk is one of the best BP Business Assn.’s regular attending company representative. Steve always has a smile on his face, eager to “chime in” on discussions and toot the horn for L&M. We are very appreciative of Steve’s involvement within our organization.

L&M services western Pa., WV, Southern Ohio and Eastern Kentucky. Some of the key brands they represent include Acuity, Lutron, Finelite and Focal Point. We are proud to showcase this fine successful local company.
