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: Michael Kamor

“I have had the pleasure to work at Leviton Manufacturing for the past 10 years. As a mid-sized company, Leviton exposes an engineer to the various disciplines needed to bring a product to market. Working as part of a product development team affords me the opportunity to work on-site at Leviton’s domestic and international manufacturing locations.

My most rewarding experiences have been developing products from concept to mass production. In doing so, I utilize the company’s suite of simulation software including finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics and plastic mold flow simulation.

If you’ve been looking for the opportunity to work with a team and leverage your engineering knowledge into innovate products, Leviton is an excellent place to build your career.”
