Adam Opel AG

The Opel company was founded in Rüsselsheim, Germany in 1862, by Adam Opel and started out as a sewing machine manufacturer. During the late 1890’s the company moved on to manufacture high-wheel bicycles, also known as penny-farthings.

The first cars were only produced in the early 1900’s by Opel’s sons and in the early 1920s, Opel became the first German car manufacturer to incorporate a mass production assembly line in the building of their automobiles. Today Opel AG is a well-established German automobile manufacturer with its headquarters still in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and a subsidiary of General Motors Company.

Opel designs, engineers, manufactures and distributes Opel-branded passenger vehicles, light commercial vehicles and vehicle parts for distribution in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. Opel designed and manufactured vehicles are also sold under the Buick brand in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China, the Holden brand in Australia and New Zealand and the Vauxhall brand in Great Britain.
