Leviton Acquires ConTech Lighting

December 14, 2016

Leviton’s acquisition of ConTech Lighting continues its strategic growth in lighting and expands its product offerings and solutions.

ConTech’s product offerings include track, decorative, pendant, cylinder, recessed, sconce, accent, display and emergency lighting fixtures.

“As a leading lighting manufacturer in sustainability, performance and design, ConTech Lighting is a perfect fit into the Leviton family of products, brands and services,” says Leviton CEO Don Hendler. “We are excited to enhance Leviton’s lighting offerings and broaden our portfolio of solutions for customers together with ConTech Lighting.”

The ConTech Lighting acquisition marks Leviton’s second in the lighting industry in the U.S. as the company looks to expand further into this market. In May 2015, the company acquired Intense Lighting, LLC, a leading solutions-based manufacturer of LED luminaires based in Anaheim, CA.

Following the ConTech acquisition, John Ranshaw, President and CEO of ConTech Lighting, will report to Daryoush Larizadeh, President and COO of Leviton. Leviton and ConTech Lighting will continue to maintain their separate agent networks and distribution channels following the acquisition to ensure that customers continue to receive the attention and service they’ve come to expect.

“ConTech Lighting has developed a reputation as a lighting manufacturer committed to providing the best fixture design and product engineering available,” says Ranshaw. “Under the leadership of and collaboration with Leviton, we look forward to developing even more innovative solutions for our customers for many years to come.”

“ConTech Lighting President John Ranshaw and Vice President Tim Brennan led a team of talented people that took a small importer of light fixtures and turned it into a large, engineering-driven light fixture company on the leading edge of LED technology,” says Al Hubbard, Chairman of E&A Companies and owner of ConTech Lighting. “We are delighted to see Leviton embrace the company’s success and proud that ConTech Lighting and its employees will be associated with such a highly respected and successful family-owned company.”
