Brief history

Founded by Swedish natives Alfred Stromberg and Androv Carlson in 1894, the year Alexander Graham Bell's patent expired, the company was one of the largest suppliers to independent (non-Bell) telephone companies. In the mid-1900s, Stromberg expanded to also manufacture radios and TVs before its acquisition by General Dynamics in 1955.
