GE Transportation Systems

GE Transportation Systems originally started as GE Harris Railway Electronics in 1995 with the joint venture between General Electric Company and Harris Corporation. In 2000, GE Harris Railway Electronics purchased Harmon Industries, thus bringing their defect detector line on board. In 2001, Harris Corporation chose to divest their minority ownership in GE Harris Railway Electronics, selling their share to General Electric Company. With Harris' exit, the company was renamed GE Transportation Systems. GE Transportation Systems itself sold their Inspection Products (defect detectors) division to Progress Rail in 2010.

For more information on specific models, see Progress Rail.
