Pharos Marine was founded more than 100 years ago; the companyﾒs founder, Gustav Dalen, had a distinguished career, winning a Nobel Prize when he introduced a system of acetylene gas lights capable of operating for a year without service. Originating in 1947 as The Lighthouse, Inc., Automatic Power Inc. provided aids to navigation for the first oil rigs of the coast of Texas. In 1989, the two companies merged, establishing a combined world leader in the Nav-Aids field. Today Pharos Marine Automatic Power is a Portfolio Company of Toxaway Capital Partners and has strategic locations in Houston, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, California, London and Singapore, as well as a worldwide network of agents and distributors. The worldwide network of agents, engineers, and salesmen endows the Pharos Marine Automatic Power team with the endless ability to consult the application of products, engineer custom projects, and explore unique, innovative application of its products.
