Referring to the Siemens history of achieving success through well engineered refinements of other people’s inventions, one Fortune analyst noted that “second is best” might well serve as Siemens’ motto. But opportunism is not the only interesting facet of Siemens’ history, which is also a story of a long family tradition and intimate involvement with some of the most important events of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Siemens and Halske was founded in Berlin in 1847 by Werner Siemens and J. G. Halske to manufacture and install telegraphic systems. Siemens, a former artillery officer in the Prussian army and an engineer who already owned a profitable patent for electroplating, was the driving force behind the company and remained so for the rest of his life.
