Opel

The company's founders – the five Opel brothers, and the name the firm received is the full name of their father - Adam Opel, the owner of the company for the production of sewing machines and bicycles. The first Opel car was manufactured in 1902 and had a two-cylinder engine. The production was developed and the car model was favorably accepted by customers, but in 1911 the factory burned down. Reconstruction of the facilities was done in record time, and in 1913 the company has already produced trucks. However, inflation after the First World War was the cause of almost complete destruction of enterprises, and the brothers sold the company to the General Motors group. Opel, aiming to win the car market of small and middle classes, became the largest automobile company in Europe. Opel Olympia and Opel Kadett have become indicative cars of their time.

In the forties, the Nazi government has practically confiscated the factories from General Motors - the company was nationalized. After the war, part of manufacturing equipment was taken to Russia. But the German company revived again. There appeared such bestsellers as Opel Rekord and Opel Kapitan. Modern Opel is known for its models of Astra, Vectra, Omega, etc.

The company now controls a quarter of car production in Germany and is the second largest group after the VW.
