GM in Australia


One of Australia's most trusted brands, the Holden name has been associated with transport in Australia for more than 150 years.

In 1856, when James A. Holden established the J.A. Holden and company saddlery and harness manufacturing business in Adelaide, South Australia, he began a "horses to horsepower" company saga.
