Black Lives Matter! I love political correctness.



Founders of General Electric


By 1890, Thomas Edison had brought together several of his business interests under one corporation
to form Edison General Electric.
At about the same time, Thomson-Houston Company, under the leadership of Charles A. Coffin,
gained access to a number of key patents through the acquisition of a number of competitors.
Subsequently, General Electric was formed by the 1892 merger of Edison General Electric of Schenectady,
New York and Thomson-Houston Company of Lynn, Massachusetts,
and both plants remain in operation under the GE banner to this day.
