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.

Testimonials: Brian Deignan

“I started with Leviton back in June of 2013 and it has been a great experience thus far. As part of Leviton’s new Engineering and Product Development Program (ePDP), I have the opportunity to work in a new business unit every six months. Each business unit of Leviton is like a small company within itself. This allows for a small to mid-size company environment within a huge company which I really enjoy.

After being at Network Solutions for 6 months in Bothell, Washington, I knew the majority of the people that worked there on a personal level. These connections will allow me to help grow my professional network. Each 6 months is a new experience which comes with new skill sets and knowledge gained. Choosing Leviton was a great way to start my career. I will learn more here than anywhere else.”
