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: Dianne Corso

“My career at Leviton spans over 30 years, primarily because of the people, work ethic and cultural environment. Having started as a Data Entry Operator (an entry-level position), I have held various positions over the years within Information Technology and Customer Care. Each position that I held within the company as I advanced afforded me the opportunity for continued growth and development.

In January 2008, the Supply Chain organization was formed, enveloping Sourcing, Demand Planning, Packaging, Warehousing / Distribution, Logistics, eCommerce and Customer Care. These individual functions combined to deliver greater customer satisfaction while providing expansion of career opportunities and positional growth. As Director of the Customer Care Department, it is fulfilling for me to see when members of my team move on within the organization, as there have been many.

Leviton has continually moved forward expanding the breadth of product, services and capabilities as a manufacturer for over 108 years. I am proud to contribute and I know I made the smart choice when joining the Leviton family of Companies.”
