Bombardier / Canadair

Bombardier Aerospace is a division of the Bombardier group. It is the third largest aircraft company in the world in terms of yearly delivery of commercial airplanes (behind Boeing and Airbus). The aerospace division was launched with the 1986 acquisition of Canadair. After acquiring Canadair and restoring it to profitability, Bombardier acquired in 1989 the near-bankrupt Short Brothers aircraft manufacturing company in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This was followed in 1990 by the acquision of the bankrupt Learjet Company of Wichita, Kansas, and finally de Havilland Aircraft of Canada based in Toronto, Ontario in 1992.
