The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - BUSINESS -

I trace my roots back to the 1876 open­ing of Thomas Edi­son’s lab­o­ra­tory in New Jersey. I was in­cor­po­rated a bit later, in 1892, and en­com­passed the as­sets of sev­eral com­pa­nies. Over the years, I have been in busi­nesses as di­verse as air­craft en­gines, finance, med­i­cal equip­ment, power trans­mis­sion, re­new­able en­ergy, trans­porta­tion, ap­pli­ances, water treat­ment sys­tems, plas­tics, me­dia and en­ter­tain­ment. Based in Bos­ton now, I re­cently sported a mar­ket value top­ping $60 bil­lion, but that’s down from more than $270 bil­lion a few years ago. I was one of the orig­i­nal 12 com­pa­nies on the Dow Jones In­dus­trial Av­er­age. Who am I? (An­swer: Gen­eral Elec­tric)
