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.
