General Electric Co. was formed by merging the Edison Electric Co. and the Thomson Houston Co. on April 15, 1892, according to GE's website.GE Lighting will remain headquartered in Cleveland, with its more than 700 employees transferring to Savant once the deal closes.

 

The transaction is expected to close in the middle of the year.
