Chrysler Canada Announces New Company Name: FCA Canada Inc.
- Canada-based automaker’s new name aligns with global parent
The name change is effective immediately and follows the naming convention of its global parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA), which adopted its new name in October 2014 when it was listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
FCA Canada, together with parent FCA US, continues to work toward the business plan presented on Investor Day in May 2014. 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.
FCA Canada has a team of over 10,000 employees.
