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: Aimee Hyland-LaMonica

“I interned at Leviton for 6 months before the company hired me as their Environmental Health and Safety Specialist. I was privileged to have an incredibly hands-on internship at Leviton. The internship exposed me to EH&S in a corporate environment as well as EH&S in a large manufacturing facility. My experiences during my internship with Leviton definitely gave me an advantage in my field of study.

I was fortunate enough to receive a job offer from Leviton during my internship. Since I started my career at Leviton, I have experienced the benefits of participating in a remarkable internship program. The hands-on experience I gained as an intern has proven instrumental in starting my profession as an Environmental Health and Safety Specialist.

Leviton was an amazing company to intern for, and as I settle into my new position, I am learning that Leviton is an incredible company to establish a career with.”
