Ben Chifley (l) and Carl Holden (r) -Launching their Dream !
Holden has a special place in Australia’s history as the manufacturer of the first all-Australian car, the 48-215 (FX). Since 1948, when the famous 48-215 took to the road, a succession of landmark models have driven themselves so deeply into the Australian way of life that they have become an integral part of it.
Along the way, the Holden name has acquired a significance and status all of its own, symbolised by a spirit of strength, ingenuity and adaptability.
Today, Holden employs more than 6300 people Australia wide and has produced more than seven million vehicles. As part of General Motors, the world’s largest automotive company since 1931, Holden is evolving from a domestic manufacturer into an internationally competitive exporter of vehicles, engines and automotive expertise to diverse markets.
Holden’s major operating facilities are located at Fishermans Bend (technical centre, administration and engine manufacturing plants), Dandenong (spare parts operation) and Lang Lang (automotive proving ground) in Victoria; as well as Elizabeth (vehicle manufacturing plant) in South Australia.
