The ASEA company was formed in the beginning of 1883, one of the chief objects being the utilization of the great inventions of one of the founders, Jonas Wenstrom, now recognised to have been one of the foremost pioneers in the field of applied electricity.
The first plant was built in Arboga on a very small scale, with a share capital of 81,000 Sw. Kronor and a production of a few dynamos per annum. Since the removal of the works to Vasteras, however, in 1892, the expansion has been continuous and fairly rapid resulting in the present position of the company as the largest electrical firm of Northern Europe.
In addition to the large electrical establishments at Vasteras and Ludvika Asea is also the owner of mines, blast furnaces and iron works, for the working of which the forests and waterfalls of the company give the necessary fuel and electric power.
The ownership of these natural resourees and subsidiary works and plants safeguards the supply of first-class and homogeneous raw materials for the various requirements of the Asea works, and offers a guarantee that the ready products will be of the best quality.
The Vasteras works rank as one of the greatest manufacturing and engineering establishments in Sweden. The ii r M workshops recently built
