About Us

About Littlefield Associates:   

     I started Littlefield Associates in 1985 following a 3 year employment as an engineer in the Advanced Development group at Datascope Corp. in Paramus NJ.      In the ensuing 25 years  I have been  privileged to work with a diverse range of clients  who,   while varying greatly in size and corporate assets,  share a passion for engineering excellence and a strong commitment to delivering value to their customers.     Many of these clients have become consistent "repeat customers" and I have been able to contribute to several generations of their product lines.
    To assure quick access to specialized expertise and additional manpower when neccesary,   I also maintain  close working relationships with a network of other consultants, contract manufacturers, and technical service  firms.    These ties allow me to, when needed,  quickly compose a team of just the right size and  knowledge mix.
