GE Lighting has a long and eventful history. The company’s origins lie in the Edison General Electric Company, which was founded by Thomas Edison in 1890. Yeah, you read that right, Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb. Seemingly a guarantee for success. Two years later, EDG merged with the Thomas Houston Company and created General Electric Lighting.
The company looks back at over 130 years of innovation. Over the years, innovation and a passion for lighting technology lead to GE engineers developing the first halogen lamp in 1959 and the first LED spots in 1962. Today, the latter are more commonly used than halogen lamps. LEDs have the advantage of being more durable and more energy-efficient. This means that using them will save you a lot of money.
GE lamps are very popular in the event technology industry. They can, for example, be put into PAR cans and strobe lights.
