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: Warren Lappay

“I’ve been with Leviton for a year and a half. I love working here, the people are great, easy to get along with, and well-liked. I remember my first day on the job; I was excited, but at the same time I was nervous. All of that was alleviated when HR greeted me with a warm welcome, and I knew then that I was going to like it here. I did not feel like I was the new guy.

HR was very helpful; they explained health benefits really well, company safety and policy, and the orientation was great. I was able to decide what health benefits are best for me and my family at a reasonable cost.

All of the employees have a good work ethic and are very professional, from the engineering team, production team, customer service team, sales team, quality team and HR team. Everybody is collaborative and delivers the highest quality product.

Leviton provides great opportunities for career advancement. Their training programs help new employees excel at their position. They are very informative and helpful, and definitely refine my skill set, which helps me be productive and successful in my position.”
