Chrysler

Chrysler Corporation was established in 1924 by the eminent engineer and businessman Walter Chrysler as a result of reorganization of the two American companies. The first car made by the company – Chrysler 70 with the 6-cylinder power plant has been produced in the year of the company incorporation. In 1928 Chrysler purchased the Dodge Company and this brought Chrysler to top positions among the largest car makers in America.

Same year the production of «Plymouth» and «De Soto» was launched. Chrysler began its intensive development by purchasing shares of European car manufacturers and continued developing and manufacturing its own good models.

In 1949 Chrysler began equipping its cars with ignition key start. In the sixties Chrysler opened several own manufacturing facilities in Europe having affiliated a number of European car manufacturers which had been later united into Chrysler Europe.

In the end of the seventies the ill- conceived policy of the company drove it to the loss of control of the European division and brought about a threat of bankruptcy. The situation has been improved as the company had been saved by Lee Jakokka – one of the top managers of the Ford Company. Jakokka has abandoned Ford for its competitors and saved Chrysler in the truest sense of the word.

«Chrysler Corporation» and «Germany Daimler Benz AG» amalgamated making a large trans-Atlantic concern «Daimler Chrysler AG» in 1998. The concern split in 2008 and the company ceased its cooperation with the Germans.
