Leviton acquires commercial lighting control systems provider Quantran Systems

Acquisition to expand Leviton's lighting control systems business in European, Far East and Middle East markets.

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Leviton, a provider of electrical wiring devices, lighting energy management systems, revenue grade metering and commercial data networking platforms, announced the acquisition of Quantran Systems Limited, a UK-based supplier of commercial lighting control systems. Combined with its existing worldwide distribution and sales channels, Leviton says the acquisition will allow it to offer its customers a broader line of lighting control solutions to meet international market requirements.

As a complementary strategic addition to Leviton's current lighting systems line, the Quantran systems are billed as easy to install, simple to program and easily integrated with third-party audio/video, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), building management systems (BMS), fire alarm and curtain control systems. A focus on product innovation, technology, reliability and quality has made Quantran a market leader in the area of dimming and lighting controls worldwide, contends Leviton.
