Westinghouse Brand History

Westinghouse Electric was founded by George Westinghouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1886. The firm became active in developing electric infrastructure throughout the United States.

The company pioneered in the power generation industry and in long-distance power transmission and high-voltage alternating-current transmission, unveiling the technology for lighting in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

The first commercial Westinghouse steam turbine driven generator, a 1,500 kW unit, began operation at Hartford Electric Light Co. in 1901. The machine, nicknamed Mary-Ann, was the first steam turbine generator to be installed by an electric utility to generate electricity in the US.

During the late 1940s Westinghouse applied its aviation gas turbine technology and experience to develop its first industrial gas turbine.

Westinghouse has been a leader ever since, developing solutions that bring safe and efficient ideas to market while adding convenience to the lives of millions of homeowners, businesses and do it yourselfers.

Westinghouse and Westpro Power Systems joined forces in the early 2000’s, the resulting synergy has allowed the two companies to study, design, engineer, manufacture and market an entire line of robust, smart, efficient power products under Westinghouse name.
