Leviton Manufacturing Co. Inc., Little Neck, N.Y., has entered into an agreement to acquire ControlThink LC, a home and building control software and services company. The acquisition will join Leviton’s strengths in product manufacturing and distribution with ControlThink’s PC-, CE- and mobile phone-based solutions for intelligent home control.
Both Leviton and ControlThink utilize standards-based technologies, such as the
Z-Wave open, wireless home control architecture. As a Leviton company,
ControlThink will develop new products that offer high quality and
interoperability with products from allied industry partners.
Operating as a separate, wholly-owned
subsidiary, ControlThink will continue to offer market-leading solutions to its
existing OEM partners and customers, while aligning with Leviton to expand the
market for intelligent home control solutions, products and services.
