Leviton acquires Viscor

Leviton Lighting has acquired Viscor, Canada’s largest independent lighting manufacturer which has products for architectural, commercial, medical, institutional and industrial applications. “This latest acquisition reiterates Leviton’s commitment to strategically expand its lighting and controls product offering,” said the company. 

Established in 1952, Viscor is a family-owned business that currently has more than 150 product families, 300 employees and a state-of-the-art, 200,000 sq ft facility. It manufactures under the Visioneering, Certolux, TBR and Canflex brands

“Viscor is a well-known and respected lighting company in Canada with a rich and innovative history,” said Daryoush Larizadeh, president and chief operating officer of Leviton. “By adding Viscor to the Leviton family, we will be able to provide a much deeper portfolio of lighting options for our customers.

“Equally important, Viscor’s product portfolio will be further enhanced with access to our wide variety of innovative lighting control options.”

“Viscor and Leviton both share a common vision and values,” said Bill Wiener, chairman of Viscor. “We are pleased that Viscor will continue in the hands of another great family run company.”
