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.

“I joined Leviton as an Application Engineer right after I graduated college. This company is a powerhouse of inventions and I enjoy the experience of being a part of its ground-breaking ideas and products. As a young engineer, I feel privileged to collaborate with senior engineers and learn about valuable workarounds and restrictions in product design and testing.

The managers are amazing individuals and their encouragements truly inspire you to put in your whole-hearted efforts. The company has a great culture and remains festive throughout the year. The most rewarding part of working for Leviton is that you can readily see the impacts of the products you have been a part of. Each day spent at Leviton is a gratifying experience.”
