History of GMC
GMC, the acronym for the General Motors Company, is the second largest automaker in the world. Founded in 1908 in Flint, Michigan by William C. Durant as a holding company for Buick, GMC started out as a carriage company owned by co-founder Charles Stewart Mott. Rapid success enabled the company to acquire Cadillac, Oakland, Elmore, the Reliance Motor Truck Company, the Rapid Motor Company (which would become the GMC division), and several other early automakers shortly thereafter. Durant was ejected from the company in 1910, but was able to covertly reacquire a controlling interest via his next venture: the Chevrolet Motor Car Company.
GMC is currently headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, and employs nearly a quarter of a million people globally and markets automobiles in approximately 140 countries. For 77 consecutive years (from 1931 to 2008), GMC sold more cars and GMC parts worldwide than any other automobile manufacturer.
The General Motors Company's massive sales over the last century have necessitated a huge network of sales and service for these vehicles. From GMC truck parts in the muddy Southeast to the snowy Northwest, GMC dealers and discount online suppliers have evolved to meet the needs of its auto owners everywhere. OEM parts are those sourced directly from the dealer network, and are made in the same factory that made the original vehicle. Aftermarket components are crafted by other manufacturers, but are designed to function the same and sometimes better the original OEM version, especially in cases where the OEM GMC part contained a manufacturing defect or design flaw. Some owners try used units from a salvage yard, but these are usually near the end of their lifespan and don't last very long, since the average used item often has roughly the same mileage as the failed component.
