  • GENERAL MOTORS GENERAL MOTORS People in motion History The company was founded on September 16, 1908, in Flint, Michigan, as a holding company for Buick, and then controlled by William C. Durant. At the turn of the 20th century there were fewer than 8,000 automobiles in America and Durant had become a leading manufacturer of horse-drawn vehicles in Flint, MI, before making his foray into the automotive industry. GM's co-founder was Charles Stewart Mott, whose carriage company was merged into Buick prior to GM's creation. Over the years Mott became the largest single stockholder in GM and spent his life with his Mott Foundation which has benefited the city of Flint. In 1909, GM acquired the Reliance Motor Truck Company of Owosso, Michigan, and the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company of Pontiac, Michigan, the predecessors of GMC Truck ( GMs market share peaked in the 1960s where they held 48.3% of the overall US market share. This total began to decline in the 1970s and continued to present day, due to greater international competition, mainly coming from the Japanese companies of Toyota and Honda. They strayed from the traditional American muscle cars, which were bulky and had poor gas mileage, to sleeker designs with better quality and efficiency (General Motors Corporation NYT). Introduction General Motors Corporation (GM) is the world's largest automaker and has been the global industry leader in sales for 76 years (General Motors, 2008a). The United States is GM's largest national market, followed by China, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Today, the company employs about 284,000 people worldwide. With its global headquarters located in Detroit, GM manufactures cars and trucks in 33 countries. In 2006, GM sold 9.1 million cars and trucks globally under the brands Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, GM Daewoo, Holden, Hummer, Opel, Pontiac, Saab, Saturn, and Vauxhall (General Motors, 2008a). GM has fostered partnerships with many automobile manufacturers around the world. The company is currently the majority shareholder in GM Daewoo Auto & Technology Co. of South Korea (General Motors, 2008a). The company currently sells its genuine parts and accessories under the GM, GM Performance Parts, GM Good wrench, and ACDelco brands through GM Service and Parts Operations, which supplies GM dealerships and distributors worldwide (General Motors, 2008a). Business Industry - Automotive The general business activity and principal products or commercial enterprise of General Motors are categorized as being part of the Automotive Industry. 4|Page The Islamia University of Bahawalpur

Chrysler was good in designing & product development, whereas Daimler was good in engineering & technology. Their products do not target the same customer. 9|P a g e The Islamia University of Bahawalpur
