In a move to expand its offerings around residential and commercial automation systems, Leviton Manufacturing, Melville, N.Y., announced it has acquired all shares of ClickOn Technology, Pretoria, South Africa, a manufacturer of automation technology ranging from remote-control switching to fully integrated building automation.
Leviton has worked with ClickOn over the years, using a number of the company’s automation solutions to enhance its Security and Automation product offerings. As part of the acquisition, Leviton will bring ClickOn’s entire product line into the Leviton family of solutions, including a remote control system that provides convenient, secure and reliable control of any electrical system and appliance from a single device.
“As home automation continues as a growth opportunity for Leviton, we are excited to add ClickOn’s DIN rail lighting control solutions to our extensive product offering,” Bruno Filio, V.P. of sales and international business development at Leviton, said in a release. “This acquisition … provides our worldwide customers with the best technologies and affordable easy-to-use control solutions to meet their needs.”
ClickOn is part of Leviton’s strategy to drive growth and innovation. Among recent moves, the company acquired JCC Advanced Lighting, a UK-based manufacturer giving Leviton a new footprint in the European market.
