Founded: 1920
The original International Telephone & Telegraph was created in 1920 by two brothers named Sosthenes and Hernand Behn who set out to build the first worldwide system of interconnected telephone lines. This was a case of a business catching up with its aspirational name as the company had a small beginning as the 'Puerto Rico Telephone Company', but grew quickly through strategic acquisitions and the purchase of telephony patents. The result was the creation of a major international provider of telephone switching equipment and telecommunication services.
[Official company history]
ITT bought in the 1930's in Germany Standard Elektrizitätsgesellschaft, Mix & Genest.

This manufacturer was suggested by Wolfgang Scheida.
