Hal Harrington, LDH & AWG
LDH in the US Fire Industry – Where it began

In the early 1970s, Hal Harrington pioneered the development of the Large Diameter Hose (LDH) concept in the United States. AWG was the original manufacturer of the Storz Couplings provided on the LDH.

When AWG began supplying the US market in the early 70s, valve availability was rather limited. By working with many fire departments of all sizes, both municipal and rural, paid and volunteer, it became obvious what types of valves were required.

As requirements were established, AWG designed and manufactured valves to meet the U.S. firefighting requirements. The valves in most common use today, were designed by AWG.

In 1988, following Hal’s Fire Hose manufacturing career, he founded Harrington, Inc. as the North American representative of AWG products.

Client Testimonials

Thank you for Exceptional Customer Service

“The purpose of this letter is to commend the team at Harrington, Inc. Many times, companies only hear from customers who have experienced problems and/or who are unhappy with a specific situation or event. I would like to personally take this time to express my dealing with the Harrington team.

First, I would like to point out that I have in the work-filed for 45 years. In my years in both purchasing and inside sales, I have delath with several people with many companies. It is a rarity to find a company that not only provides quality products, fair market pricing and reasonable lead-times, but has a team second to none (very team oriented)…

Thank you, Harrington, Inc. not only for the exceptional customer service provided to Southland Fire and Safety Equipment, Inc. over the years, but from me personally for making the last (19) years for me a pleasurable experience.”

– Linda Lovetro, Southland Fire and Safety Equipment

Thank you!

“Everyone at Anchor-Richey EVS would like to thank all of you for taking such good care of us throughout the year. I personally have called and emailed and Dave and Tim have helped me so much and taught me many things as well in this business. It is a pleasure to know that you have the resources at Harrington to find what our Fire & Rescue customers need along with the good prices that they can afford..”

– Susan Bowman, Parts & Equipment Sales

Outstanding Service

“I want you all to know the treatment I received on this call was outstanding and my questions were answered and taken care of.

Coming from a small town of 800 people, and leading Goshen NH Volunteer Fire Dept of 18 men and woman firefighters, I appreciate getting treated no different than the treatment the Chief of Boston, or Philadelphia may get. A few simple Bearing Roller Balls and a set screw may only cost a few dollars, but respect and great customer service is priceless.

To all of you, we use your large 5 way manifold valves and they work great. My firefighters trust and feel safe when we use your products.

This is a shout out to all the employees that work on the lines, your commitment and pride to quality shows at a very high standard.

Thanks for the Quality Products.

As a side note about myself, I have worked in the quality control and machining industry for 35 years and I have been in the fire service for 32 years, so I have seen good and bad quality work and products over those years, So concluding to all of you, The Harrington Equipment on our Goshen NH Fire Trucks is the real good stuff.
We will be purchasing some additional equipment in 2017.”

– Dan Peterson, Chief Goshen NH VFD
