Have you heard? GN are 150!


1869 The first to reach China

C.F. Tietgen founded the Great Northern Telegraph Company and used the Danish royal connection with Russia to build a telegraph through Siberia to the East. By 1871, GN opens the world’s first telegraph connection from Northern Europe to China – transforming international communication and trade.

1940s Reaching new wavelengths

After World War II, the world was changing. Moving beyond cable networks to wireless signals, GN invested in the development and production of a promising new system, FM radio communication – a massive leap into the future of global communications.

1960s Keeping people in touch

Before the era of mobile phones, GN made it easier to make calls with the drop of a coin. Payphones began to line city streets around the world and by 1991, GN had exported nearly 250,000 payphones to more than 35 countries worldwide – bringing people closer together.


Still connecting people

Today, GN continues to transform communication by providing intelligent audio solutions to millions of people worldwide. With over 6,000 employees and sales in 100 countries, we are helping people around the world hear more, do more and be more than they ever thought possible.
