Do you remember these GE mottoes?

Yesteryear: "Progress is our most important product."

(Back in those days, GE had an actor spokesperson: Ronald Reagan )

Not so long ago: "We bring good things to life."

Today’s motto: "Imagination at work."

GE in the news

Photos of the Schenectady Plant

Have you noticed since around 1982 (during the Jack Welch era), General Electric Company dropped its name to be known solely as GE?

They have, however, kept the “meatball” logo.

About the time that they changed the name to just GE, the curly cues on the meatball were eliminated, also. It is a subtle change and I have been told that it only cost GE $1 million!

We Bring Good Things To Life

In 1978 I had a product service assignment in LST-G Bdlg 269 after completing the FEP. There was a company store in a building that is now the visitor reception center. There was also some sort of weekly newspaper for the plant. The store ran an advertisment one week for a sale item. The phrase "While Quantities Last" was just below the Company sloagan "We Bring Good Things to Life".

Field Work

Someone at the FEDC once remarked: You can take the engineer out of the field, but can't remove the field from the generator!

Can you pull the generator rotor? Yes, of course. However, the "field" does not exist until the exitation system is "flashed" during start-up. Thus, you can pull the rotor but not the "field," which is an electrical flux thing. LOL :-)

The engineer can also return to the field, if he misses the work!
