Leviton Rolls Recent Acquisitions Into New Lighting Business Unit

Leviton is finally taking the plunge in the lighting industry. After acquiring three lighting companies over the past couple of years, the Melville, NY-based manufacturer best known for wiring devices and controls announced today it has consolidated its recent lighting acquisitions into one new Leviton Lighting Business Unit.

Leviton’s release said the acquisitions of JCC Advanced Lighting, ConTech Lighting and Intense Lighting, position the company “to deliver the broadest portfolio of innovative, high-performance and sustainable lighting solutions and fixtures in the industry.”

This reorganization strategically aligns Leviton’s recent acquisitions of JCC, Contech Lighting and Intense Lighting under one leadership team. John Ranshaw, former president of Contech Lighting, will serve as vice president and general manager of the newly integrated Leviton Lighting Business Unit, focusing on continuing to expand Leviton’s lighting product offering, sales footprint and continuous improvement in delivering the highest level of customer service, the release said.

"As a company, Leviton’s deep bench of lighting knowledge and expertise is now organized to operate efficiently, innovate quickly and maintain its industry leadership position,” said Ranshaw. “We look forward to developing even more comprehensive and exciting lighting solutions for commercial, hospitality, supermarket, retail and residential customers in the future.”
