Chrysler Canada changes name to FCA Canada
Chrysler Canada Inc. is changing its name to FCA Canada Inc., following the change of its global corporate parent’s name to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA) in October 2014.
The name change is effective immediately, the carmaker said in a statement.
FCA Canada has more than 10,000 employees.
The company assembles the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans in Windsor, Ont., as well as the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger in Brampton, Ont.
FCA Canada also has an aluminum casting plant in Toronto, a research and development centre in Windsor, and has sales offices and parts distribution centres across the country.
“FCA Canada, together with parent FCA US, continues to work toward the business plan presented on Investor Day in May 2014,” the company said in a statement. “Additionally, the company remains proud of its joint heritage. FCA Canada continues to build upon the solid foundations first established by Walter P. Chrysler in 1925, as well as a rich Fiat heritage that dates from 1899.”
South of the border, the company’s name is FCA US.
