The Berlin-based Union Electricitäts-Gesellschaft (UEG) built and operated many trams in Germany and many other countries until it was completely absorbed into the Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft (AEG) in 1904. In Austria, AEG then operated as AEG-Union until 1959, before being absorbed into ELIN. The origin of UEG lies in the United States of America. Founded there in 1882, the Thomson-Houston Electric Company founded UEG on January 5, 1892 as a subsidiary to represent its interests in Germany, Austria-Hungary, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Russia and Turkey. In addition to the Thomson-Houston International Electric Company, Ludwig Loewe & Co. KGaA and Thyssen & Co in Mülheim an der Ruhr also had a share capital of 1.5 million marks.
