Siemens_Logo History Gyaniz

Siemens & Halske was represented by the S & H alphabets in the logo until 1973, when the company logo was reduced to Siemens alone.

Siemens:

Siemens & Halske was founded by Werner von Siemens on 12 October 1847. Based on the telegraph, his invention used a needle to point to the sequence of letters, instead of using Morse code. The company, then called Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Siemens & Halske, opened its first workshop on October 12.

In 1848, the company built the first long-distance telegraph line in Europe; 500 km from Berlin to Frankfurt am Main. In 1867, Siemens completed the monumental Indo-European (Calcutta to London) telegraph line. In 1881, a Siemens AC Alternator driven by a watermill was used to power the world’s first electric street lighting in the town of Godalming, United Kingdom. The company continued to grow and diversified into electric trains and light bulbs.
