About Us: Our Story

group of people In 1906, Isidor Leviton founded a small tinsmithing business in New York City. He began by manufacturing gas mantle tips and selling them on a push cart on the busy streets of Manhattan. In 1910, Leviton partnered with Thomas Edison to design the pull-chain lampholders for his electric lamps. Within ten years, the lampholders were being used in every apartment in New York and the Leviton business grew to new heights.

men and women A lot has changed since then, but two things have remained the same: Leviton is still a family business with a reputation for great quality, and we are still driven by a desire to innovate and adapt by creating sustainable, intelligent solutions for our customers.

“I have been working for Leviton Manufacturing for the past 5 years. My position began as an assembler and gave me the opportunity to work with different products like copper and fiber; as a result of my determination and quick learning abilities, I had the opportunity to become a team leader, a member of the safety committee, and a strong team player.

I have recently been promoted into Document Control Coordinator, which has awarded me the opportunity to learn how to manage all of our documents, data, records, etc. If you are looking for a great work environment full of different career opportunities and are ready to get hands on training and experience, think big, think Leviton.”
