Melville, N.Y.-based Leviton Tuesday announced the acquisition of JCC Advanced Lighting, a United Kingdom-based leader in LED lighting suitable for a wide variety of residential and commercial applications.
The acquisition establishes Leviton in the U.K. market and affords the company growth opportunities internationally, according to the company.
“Leviton’s acquisition of JCC provides a significant presence in the U.K. and a good base for the future,” said 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.”
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
JCC will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Leviton, maintaining operations in the U.K. 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 U.K. and overseas,” added Adey. “Leviton’s input will help further enhance our LED product innovation and development, which is fundamental to our business strategy."
