We are a team and a family at Lighthouse. Our employees are proud to work here and their continued dedication to quality and excellence ensures our Government and commercial customers receive superior products and services.
Who We Are
Lighthouse for the Blind is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization headquartered in St. Louis, MO. We are a manufacturer whose mission is to assist individuals who are legally blind by making available employment, education and support services. We operate two plants – a liquid and aerosol manufacturing plant and a packaging and kitting facility where we manufacture, fill, assemble and package over 300 commercial and government products.
Lighthouse for the Blind is proud to be an AbilityOne agency. Since 1938, the AbilityOne program is the preferred supply source for federal employees and global distribution of choice for the Federal Government. The AbilityOne program mandates that the Federal Government must purchase commodity goods and services from non-profit agencies that employ those who are legally blind or severely disabled. To be a member of the AbilityOne program, 75% of an agency’s direct labor force must be legally blind. We proudly operate at a 93% ratio. Proceeds from the sale of our products contribute to the growth of sixteen Community Outreach Programs known as our “See the Future” programs. These programs benefit children and adults who are legally blind in Missouri and Western Illinois. We invite you to explore our different brands and product lines.
By having a variety of packaging capabilities and materials available, we are able to provide our customers with a single source for components, packaging, sterilization, laboratory testing and value-added service.
We assemble an extensive array of medical, dental and veterinary kitting options to satisfy all your kitting needs. We specialize in procuring, packaging, kitting and sterilizing components for multiple types of kits.
We holds over 20 contracts with Government agencies covering more than 200 products. To our knowledge, we are the only aerosol manufacturing facility in the world operated primarily by employees who are visually impaired.
LHB Industries offers a wide variety of contract liquid and filling services for Government and commercial customers including Green Seal Environmentally Certified and USDA BioPreferred cleaners and maintenance products.
