Leviton was founded by Isidor Leviton in 1906. After immigrating from Russia to the United States, Isidor Leviton opened up a small tinsmithing business producing mantle tips used for gas lighting. Soon with the introduction of Edison’s light bulb, the small family business shifted production to manufacture a single electrical product -- the pull-chain lamp holder. From that one electrical device, Leviton has been churning out groundbreaking products that improve electrical safety, enhance communication, provide efficiency and cost savings and add convenience and value to our world.
Investment in innovation and expansion of capabilities continue to be our hallmarks. Recent products developments such as decora smart™, Wi-Fi and Apple HomeKit product lines, Decora® Digital Controls, the industry’s first SmartlockPro® Dual Function AFCI/GFCI outlet and Atlas X-1 Category 8 Cabling System showcase our commitment to helping customers and contractors enhance spaces through functionality and efficiency. Coupled with recent acquisitions, we are poised for even greater success as we extend our presence and deliver smart, reliable products to a rapidly-changing world.
