Melville, N.Y.-based Leviton has acquired JCC Advanced Lighting, a United Kingdom (UK)-based leader in LED lighting for a wide variety of residential and commercial applications. The acquisition establishes Leviton in the UK market and affords the company growth opportunities internationally.
Integrating JCC’s energy-efficient LED lighting into Leviton’s smart solutions provides a unique opportunity to develop the next generation of intelligent design. Through the work of the combined companies, customers will be able to receive efficient lighting solutions, including the incorporation of occupancy sensors and dimmers to help achieve nearly 50-percent energy savings when compared to typical installation
“Leviton’s acquisition of JCC provides a significant presence in the UK and a good base for the future,” says Don Hendler, CEO of Leviton. “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.”
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, currently the Executive Chairman of JCC, who will report directly to Daryoush Larizadeh, Leviton’s Chief Operating Officer.
“JCC is delighted to be part of Leviton, given its renowned expertise and global reach in controls technology, which will drive JCC’s further expansion both in the UK and overseas,” Adey notes. “Leviton’s input will help further enhance our LED product innovation and development, which is fundamental to our business strategy.”
The acquisition of JCC continues Leviton’s commitment to strategic growth and innovation. Leviton has evolved into a global provider of electrical wiring devices, data connectivity solutions, plus lighting and energy management systems for a variety of end-use markets.
