The thirty-year-old inventor had an idea for improving the electric telegraph developed by Charles Wheatstone and William Fothergill Cooke. He established the telegraph construction company “Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Siemens & Halske” with precision mechanic Johann Georg Halske to produce his new device. The company began operations on October 12, 1847, with ten employees working in a building in a back courtyard in Berlin.
