Siemens traces its history back to 1847 when inventor Werner von Siemens established a telegraph construction company in Berlin. The firm grew rapidly, entering new lines of business and expanding into global markets.
Siemens AG was founded in 1966, and in 1989 its organisation was overhauled to make its individual units more autonomous. In 1998, the company launched its 10-Point Programme under which it retained only those activities in which it was first or second in the global market. Consequently, its revenues and profits improved substantially, and the Siemens AG share price skyrocketed to new highs.
Acquisitions have been one of the key growth strategies for Siemens, allowing the business to broaden and diversify its product portfolio, enter new markets and maintain its leading position. Some of the firm’s most recent purchases include: Tass International in 2017; Agilion GmbH, J2 Innovations, Mendix and Austemper Design Systems in 2018; ESTEQ, Process Systems Enterprise and MultiMechanics in 2019; and C&S Electric in 2020.
