Genelec: Origin of name?

Hi! I own a pair of 8040A's and am very happy with them. I was just wondering where the name Genelec came from. I tried searching through the website but was not able to find anything about this. Thanks very much! :)

Hello,

I haven't seen anything official in written form, but I have heard that the origin of the name might be a combination of two words: GENious ELECtronics :)

Thanks for your message, Ilkka. :)

My friend thought it was from General Electric....and I knew that was sacrilege. :shock:

It would be cool to learn the answer for sure. Please post if you find out, ok? :)

Thanks very much!
