Full Feature Documentary ‘Westinghouse’ Online

“You can be sure …if it’s Westinghouse”

Not a day goes by that we don’t use something pioneered by George Westinghouse.

He is the forgotten role model that our country needs today to teach future generations of Americans
that hard work and kindness pay off.

George Westinghouse was one of the most successful men in the world.

A respected engineer, inventor and America’s greatest industrialist.

He was a pioneer of the industrial revolution and played a leading role in turning the United States from a young agrarian society into a modern economic powerhouse.

The name “Westinghouse” has been a household name the world over for more than 100 years
because of one man, his love of machines, and his desire to make the world a better place.

The accomplishments that George Westinghouse had in his lifetime had a major impact on the way we live today.

His work in the railroad industry with the Westinghouse air brake, the electrification of the world
with Westinghouse alternating current, him being instrumental in developing natural gas
as a fuel, and his impact on the shipping industry with the Westinghouse geared marine turbine engine.

George Westinghouse was known as a good person.

He always had a very good rapport with his workers. There was never a strike at any of the Westinghouse companies all the time he had control of them.

And, you know, that was not common back in those days.

He certainly was not motivated by greed or money.

He really thought that his accomplishments would benefit mankind.

And that alone was a driving force for him.
