In 1876, Thomas Edison opened his first real workshop in Menlo Park, New Jersey. This workshop would eventually yield arguably one of the most important inventions of the modern age: the electric light.
In 1890, Edison started a company to bring together his various businesses all under one roof, and called it the “ Edison General Electric Company ”. Two years later Edison merged with his primary competitor, the Thomas-Houston Company, and they called the new company the “ General Electric Company ”.
