An Example of a Company Conglomerate

An Example of a Company Conglomerate | BUSS4 Change Managment Miss Whalley | Scoop.it

Miss Whalley's insight:
An example of a successful conglomerate is General Electric, popularly known as "GE." General Electric, formed by Thomas Edison in 1890, began as a lighting business and has since transformed into a conglomerate that is more synonymous with "general" than "electric." Shortly after the company was formed, it engaged in horizontal mergers and other forms of expansion that resulted in producing radios, refrigerators and wind turbines. GE developed World War I aircraft and eventually became the largest manufacturer of jet engines through GE Aviation, a new line of business.
