Western Union

The Western Union Company is a financial services multinational headquartered in Denver, Colorado.

The Western Union Telegraph Firm was founded in Rochester, New York, in 1851 as the New York and Mississippi Valley Printing Telegraph Company. After merging with a competitor in 1856, the company changed its name to the Western Union Telegraph Company.

[4] From the 1860s through the 1980s, the corporation dominated the American telegraphy industry,[5] establishing a variety of telegraph-related services (including wire money transfer) in addition to its primary business of transmitting and delivering telegram messages.

After suffering financial difficulties in the 1980s, Western Union shifted its focus away from communications and towards money transfer services. The company stopped operating as a communications company in 2006 and is currently the world’s second-largest money transfer provider(source).
