From our founding 140 years ago by Thomas Edison, GE has been at the forefront of innovation. From the first incandescent lightbulbto the first voice radio broadcast, from jet engines to x-ray machines, and now to the Industrial Internet, GE has sought to innovate solutions to the world's most pressing problems - including the need for reliable energy, clean water, affordable healthcare, and safe transportation. While founded in the United States and always proud of our American roots, it will come as no surprise that, as a company seeking to address the world's most pressing problems, GE has worked globally almost since our inception. Or that we have been among the most consistent advocates of free trade and open markets for more than 100 years.
