GM Defense Expands into Global Markets

Ken Zino of AutoInformed.com on GM Defense Expands into Global Markets - GM photoGM Defense said today that it will expand across the globe via a newly formed entity, GM Defense International.

This will extend GM Defense’s reach into global markets “in support of U.S. allies and partners’ transition to a more electric and connected future,” GM said in a release. GM Defense will continue to operate as a subsidiary of its parent company, General Motors, reporting into GM President Mark Reuss.

GM Defense uses commercial technologies to develop products to aid the fighting of wars. GM Defense can scale to nearly any level of production while providing its military customers access to maintenance and support on a global scale.

GM Defense will also use GM’s $35 billion investment in transformational technologies to support its global defense and government customers’ use of electrification, autonomy and connected vehicles.

“As a non-traditional entrant to the defense market, we continue to receive positive feedback on our ability to bring commercial technologies forward at the speed that our customers require in these complex times. As we continue to explore opportunities across North America, Europe, the Middle East, the Indo Pacific region and beyond, we look forward to leveraging commercial technology to modernize the mobility capabilities of allied armed forces around the world,” said Steve duMont, president of GM Defense.
