Siemens was the original start-up company, founded by Werner von Siemens in 1847 with partner Kohann Georg Halske. They built their telegraph construction business from a backyard workshop into Europe's largest industrial manufacturer. They successfully changed the method of transmitting telegraph messages from Morse code to a needle pointer. Siemens was commissioned to build Europe's first major telegraph connection, reaching 670 kilometres between Berlin and Frankfurt. This was followed by a contract in 1853 to build Russia's state telegraph network, extending some 9,000 kilometres.
By 1855 the company had set up its first subsidiary company in St. Petersburg. This was followed by a UK subsidiary in 1858, which diversified into cabling and was responsible for laying a successful submarine transatlantic cable in 1875. From these successes, Siemens has grown over 175 years into a global technological conglomerate, with production and sales sites all over the world. Still based in Berlin and Munich, the company now employs nearly 300,000 people in 200 countries.
