Leviton expanding LED lighting capabilities with JCC acquisition

October 29, 2013 | By Anthony Capkun

October 29, 2013 – Leviton has acquired JCC Advanced Lighting, a United Kingdom-based player in LED lighting for a variety of residential and commercial applications.

“Since our beginnings more than a century ago, Leviton has built a reputation on innovation and product development, so adding a market-leading advanced lighting solutions business like JCC makes strategic sense for our global expansion,” said Don Hendler, CEO of Leviton.

Integrating JCC’s energy-efficient LED lighting into Leviton’s smart solutions provides an opportunity to develop the next-generation of intelligent design, says the company. Through the work of the combined companies, customers will be able to receive more-efficient lighting solutions, boasts Leviton, including the incorporation of occupancy sensors and dimmers.

JCC will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Leviton, maintaining operations in the UK. The company will continue to be led by Richard Adey, who will report directly to Daryoush Larizadeh, Leviton’s COO.
