Origins of Siemens

The origin of Siemens begins in Munich in the mid-19th century. The company produced telegraph systems and pioneered in the development of electric-engineering products. By 1907, Siemens employed over 34,000 people, most of whom certainly took pride in their work and their employer as an innovator in the field of technology.

Across the 20th century, Siemens was at the forefront of technological developments. Many examples of their inventions can be found in museums, particularly the German Museum of Masterpieces of Science and Technology in Munich, the world’s largest dedicated to science and technology. Examples of the company's important work include high-voltage transformers, wind turbines, and washing machines. As of 2018, Siemens’ renewable energy segment was responsible for the largest installed capacity of offshore wind turbines in Europe.
