Along with the rest of the Bell System, WE's identity was updated with the 1969 Bell System logo designed by Saul Bass.


Western Electric (1969 - Without Bell)

When AT&T divested the Bell System, they kept Western Electric and Bell Laboratories. When this occurred, AT&T simply dropped the Bell mark, using the version occasionally used in the past. Western Electric came to an end in 1995 when AT&T changed the name of AT&T Technologies to Lucent Technologies (now remnants operating as Nokia via their acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent, the successor to Lucent Technologies), in preparation for its spinoff. Lucent became independent in 1996.
