Founded in 1886, the Westinghouse Electric Company was one of the dozens of companies founded by innovator George Westinghouse. Responsible for the introduction and development of alternating current for light and power, Westinghouse Eclectic Company was a direct competitor of Thomas Edison. Soon after, by acquiring Nikola Tesla’s patents for a particular current and induction motor, Westinghouse became the leader in electric power development. The design and manufacture of large-scale lighting was a natural segue.
