Created in 1925 by Walter P. Chrysler, the company was built upon the remains of the Maxwell car company, which Chrysler led for two years before its dissolution.
The smallest out of America’s Big Three car makers, Chrysler has been to the wall a few times. Between 1998 and 2007, in the aftermath of the “merger of equals”, the company was part of DaimlerChrysler. From 2007 until its bankruptcy in 2009, Chrysler owned by private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management.
Since going through state sponsored Chapter 11, Chrysler has been controlled by Fiat of Italy. Fiat finally completed its buyout in 2014, and the two companies now part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), which is headquartered in London, legally domiciled in the Netherlands and run out of Italy.
For whom is Chrysler named?
Chrysler bears the name of its founder, Walter Percy Chrysler.
