General Motors Ford

Wiki info

William C. Durant's Durant-Dort Carriage Company had become the leading manufacturer of horse-drawn vehicles in the United States by 1900. Durant was averse to automobiles, but business associate James H. Whiting persuaded him to purchase the Buick Motor Company in 1904. Leveraging a 15-year-long deal with McLaughlin Motor Car Company of Canada for Buick engines, Durant formed the General Motors Company with partners Charles Stewart Mott and Sam McLaughlin. [failed verification] Durant planned to acquire and consolidate other automakers with GM acting as a holding company. GM's first acquisition in addition to Buick was Oldsmobile, on November 12, 1908. In 1909 Durant brought in Cadillac, Elmore, Oakland (predecessor of Pontiac), and the Reliance Motor Truck Company of Owosso, Michigan and the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company of Pontiac, Michigan (predecessors of GMC). Durant over-leveraged the fledgling company in making these acquisitions, and was removed by the board of directors in 1910 at the behest of the bankers who backed the loans to keep GM in business.
