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: Bill Reggio

“I began working with Leviton the summer of 2013, one month after I graduated college. Leviton offered a unique opportunity beyond applying the skills I acquired throughout my engineering schooling. Leviton cares about the growth of its employees and the Engineering & Product Development Program (ePDP) is a great example of its commitment.

The ePDP will take you to 4 business units throughout the U.S., each of which brings different challenges, from engineering and manufacturing to sales and marketing. Together, these challenges foster the development of an engineer who can adapt and respond to the technological needs of a changing world.

Just as I strive to continue learning in order to make a difference in the world, Leviton strives to be innovative and encourages its employees to be so as well. Coming out of college, I was eager to begin my professional career, and joining the ePDP at Leviton was the smart choice that continues to spark my excitement.”
