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.

Testimonials: Amy Neary

“I have been working for Leviton for the past three years. I started out as a Buyer at Leviton Manufacturing for mechanical products. After demonstrating to the Supply Chain department that I had the drive and ambition to handle a large amount of responsibility, I was given the opportunity to take on additional commodities such as electronics and packaging.

Leviton takes pride in giving their employees the opportunity to learn new skills and to help them grow in their career. The Supply Chain department is also strongly encouraged to take advantage of the training classes that the team is offered throughout the year. Through these training classes, I have been able to further my skill-set as a buyer and grow in my career.

I also have developed many positive relationships with my co-workers in the Supply Chain department and they are an amazing group of people to work with. Leviton has been in business for 108 years and I do believe that it is a remarkable company to work for.”
