The Westinghouse Electric Corporation was an American manufacturing company founded in 1886 by George Westinghouse.  The firm became active in developing electric infrastructure throughout the United States.  The company's largest factories were located in Pennsylvania, and in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where they made turbines, generators, motors, and switch gear for generation, transmission, and use of electricity.  In addition to George Westinghouse, early engineers working for the company included Frank Conrad, Benjamin Garver Lamme, Bertha Lamme (America’s first woman mechanical engineer), Oliver B. Shallenberger, William Stanley, Nikola Tesla, Stephen Timoshenko, and Vladimir Zworykin.

Early on, Westinghouse was a rival to Thomas Edison's electric company.  In 1892, Edison was merged with Westinghouse's chief AC rival, the Thomson-Houston Electric Company, making an even bigger competitor, General Electric.  Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company changed its name to Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1945.  By 1997, with little remaining of the company other than its broadcasting division, Westinghouse renamed itself CBS Corporation.  CBS Corporation was acquired by Viacom in 1999, and the Westinghouse Corporation was completed on April 26, 2000.  The nuclear power business still exists as Westinghouse Electric Company, which was spun off from the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1999.
