Westinghouse up for sale?

April 2005
Power Economics;4/21/2005, Vol. 9 Issue 8, p3
This article reports that Westinghouse Electric Corp., the subsidiary of British Nuclear Fuels, could be sold by the British government, the company's chief executive said this month. But Steve Tritch, who also is president of the nuclear power company, said if a sale were to happen, it would not be as traumatic as its 1999 divestiture from the former Westinghouse Electric Corp. The former Pittsburgh conglomerate shed its industrial remnants after changing its name to CBS--it later merged with Viacom--and moving to New York.
