1839 – Steam engine

Johan Munktell took an early interest in the development of the steam engine throughout Europe. As an example, he spent some time in England to learn more about it.

Munktell's started making steam engines very early on and did much to develop them. However, they realized in time that the steam engine was eventually going to be replaced by the internal combustion engine. And so it did, even though it took almost a century to do so.
