Siemens & Halske was founded by Werner von Siemens and Johann Georg Halske on 1 October 1847. Based on the telegraph, their invention used a needle to point to the sequence of letters, instead of using Morse code. The company, then called Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Siemens & Halske, opened its first workshop on 12 October. In 1866, Werner von Siemens made what was probably his most significant contribution to electrical engineering. Building on work by Michael Faraday, he discovered the dynamo-electric principle, laying the cornerstone for using electricity as a power source.
