General Dynamics Corp


General Dynamics is a market leader in business aviation; combat vehicles, weapons systems and munitions; shipbuilding; and communication and information technology systems and solutions.


The company was formed in 1952 through the combination of the Electric Boat Company, Consolidated Vultee (CONVAIR) and several others.


The company grew organically and through acquisitions until the early 1990s, when it sold nearly all of its divisions except Electric Boat and Land Systems. Starting in the mid-1990s, General Dynamics began expanding by acquiring combat vehicle-related businesses, additional shipyards, information technology product and service companies and Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.


Since then the company has acquired and integrated more than 65 businesses to strengthen and complement its business portfolio.


The company is organized into four business groups: Aerospace, Combat Systems, Information Systems and Technology and Marine Systems. Each business group is a leader in the markets it serves and comprises several business units.
