Introduction
Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft AG (AEG) (German: "General electricity company") was a German producer of electrical equipment founded as the Deutsche Edison-Gesellschaft für angewandte Elektrizität in 1883 in Berlin by Emil Rathenau. After World War II its headquarters was relocated to Frankfurt am Main. In 1967 AEG joined with its subsidiary Telefunken AG creating Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-Gesellschaft AEG-Telefunken. In 1985 Daimler-Benz purchased the AEG-Telefunken Aktiengesellschaft, which was renamed to AEG Aktiengesellschaft and wholly integrated the company in 1996 into Daimler-Benz AG (1998:DaimlerChrysler). The remains of AEG became part of Adtranz (now Bombardier Transportation) and Deutsche Aerospace (1998: DASA, now Airbus). After acquiring the AEG household subsidiary AEG Hausgeräte GmbH in 1994, in 2005 Electrolux obtained the rights to the brand name AEG, which it now uses on some of its products. The AEG name is also licensed to various brand partners under the Electrolux Global Brand Licensing program.
