The Westinghouse Machine Company manufactured gas and steam engines, turbines and mechanical stokers. The company began in 1880, and the first contract to build a turbine dates to 1896. The Westinghouse Electric Corporation's Steam Division had plants located in Lester and Essington in eastern Pennsylvania, south of Philadelphia. On November 11, 1919, E. M. Herr, the President of the company, announced, "In future the Works of the Company located in the towns of Essington and Lester, Pa., will be known officially as the 'South Philadelphia Works.' Please instruct the members of your force accordingly." In 1945 the company's name was changed to Westinghouse Electric Corporation.
