Leviton Opens Innovation Center in New Orleans Warehouse District
Leviton has had a presence in NOLA since acquiring Home Automation, Inc. in 2012.
People walking down Fultron Street in the historic New Orleans Warehouse District will now pass Leviton's new Innovation Center, dedicated to furthering Leviton's technology department and elevating the smart home and business automation industries.
At the new facilities, Leviton will create, design and promote new products. These include secure cloud services, apps, embedded firmware and hardware for the company’s new Internet of Things products, many of which are developed in the up-and-coming tech hub that is New Orleans.
The Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation team in the current New Orleans east facility will be moving into the new space to join all activities together in one location, providing a platform for collaborative efforts throughout the company.
"We are always seeking new opportunities for advancement of our product development processes to continue growing and expanding our business,” says Daryoush Larizadeh, president and COO, Leviton. “With the new Innovation Center in the Warehouse District of New Orleans, we are empowering leading edge engineering teams and inspiring fresh, cutting-edge creativity backed by Leviton’s 111-year history of stability and quality.”
New Orleans has been the central location of the Leviton home and business automation activities since 2012 following the company’s acquisition of Home Automation, Inc.
The new Innovation Center is located at 865 Fulton Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.
