About GM

General Motors Corporation (GM) (NYSE: GM) is a multinational automobile manufacturer and currently employs approximately 266,000 people around the world. It was originally founded in 1908 by William C. Durant and is currently the ninth largest publicly traded company in the world, as measured by the number of employees.

It manufactures various different brands of automobiles including Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GM Daewoo, GMC, Holden, Hummer, Opel, Pontiac, Saab, Saturn, Vauxhall, and Wuling. GM is also the majority shareholder of GM Daewoo Auto & Technology Co. of South Korea and has had many collaborations with the world's various automakers.

In recent years the company has endured significant financial turmoil, including a $50 billion dollar loss in 2007 and 2008. In December 2008, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill that would have given the automakers $14 billion. Negotiations over the plan collapsed in the Senate. Several days later, on December 19, 2008, the Bush administration approved a $17.4 billion loan for the companies on its own initiative.

History

General Motors (GM) was founded on September 16, 1908, in Flint, Michigan, as a holding company for Buick, then controlled by William C. Durant, and acquired Oldsmobile later that year. The next year, Durant brought in Cadillac, Elmore, Oakland (later known as Pontiac) and several others. In 1909, General Motors acquired the Reliance Motor Truck Company of Owosso, Michigan, and the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company of Pontiac, Michigan, the predecessors of GMC Truck. Durant lost control of GM in 1910 to a bankers' trust, because of the large amount of debt taken on in its acquisitions coupled with a collapse in new vehicle sales. A few years later, Durant would start the Chevrolet Motor car company and through this he secretly purchased a controlling interest in GM. Durant took back control of the company after one of the most dramatic proxy wars in American business history. Shortly after, he again lost control for good after the new vehicle market collapsed. Alfred Sloan was picked to take charge of the corporation and led it to its post war global dominance. This unprecedented growth of GM would last through the late 70's and into the early 80's.
