Leviton has acquired JCC Advanced Lighting, a United Kingdom-based leader in LED lighting for residential and commercial applications. The acquisition establishes Leviton in the UK market and affords it growth opportunities internationally.

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.

“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.”

Through the work of the combined companies, customers will be able to receive even more efficient lighting solutions, including occupancy sensors and dimmers to help achieve nearly 50 percent energy savings.

“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,” says Adey. “Leviton’s input will help further enhance our LED product innovation and development, which is fundamental to our business strategy.”
