The Leviton Manufacturing Company has its origins at the dawn of the electrical era in 1906. Originally engaged in the fabrication of mantle tips for gas lighting, the Company soon converted to production of a single electrical product -- a pull-chain lampholder. Today, Leviton's product offering comprises more than 20,000 distinct catalog numbers, and the Company stands as a leader in the electrical industry, serving the industrial, commercial, OEM and residential markets.
Isidor Leviton’s dream of offering customers total capability from a single source has evolved through the strategic growth of the company’s Strategic Business Units (SBUs) as well as the growth of its wholly-owned domestic and foreign subsidiaries and affiliated companies. To effectively respond to the evolving demands of the marketplace, Leviton operates with an efficient organizational structure comprised of five SBU’s -- teams of resources and people that concentrate on researching, designing, engineering and marketing products that are suited to the needs of various markets.
