The General Electric Company or GEC was a major British-based industrial conglomerate, involved in consumer and defence electronics, communications and engineering. The company was once a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. It was renamed Marconi Corporation plc in 1999 after its defence arm, Marconi Electronic Systems was amalgamated with British Aerospace to form BAE Systems. In 2005 Ericsson purchased the bulk of Marconi plc with the remainder of the business renamed Telent.
