Friends before we know any company that is in dundee, the better we know a brief history of the first dundee .. let us see review below.
The name “Dundee” is made up of two parts: the common Celtic place-name element dun, meaning fort; and a second part that may derive from a Celtic element, cognate with the Gaelic dè, meaning ‘fire’.
Dundee in 1693 by John Slezer.
While earlier evidence for human occupation is abundant,] Dundee’s success and growth as a seaport town arguably came as a result of William the Lion’s charter, granting Dundee to his younger brother, David (later Earl of Huntingdon) in the late 12th century. The situation of the town and its promotion by Earl David as a trading centre led to a period of prosperity and growth. The earldom was passed down to David’s descendants, amongst whom was John Balliol. The town became a Royal Burgh on John’s coronation as king in 1292.The town and its castle were occupied by English forces for several years during the First War of Independence and recaptured by Robert the Bruce in early 1312.] The original Burghal charters were lost during the occupation and subsequently renewed by Bruce in 1327.
The burgh suffered considerably during the conflict known as the Rough Wooing of 1543 to 1550, and was occupied by the English forces of Andrew Dudley from 1547. In 1548, unable to defend the town against an advancing Scottish force, Dudley ordered that the town be burnt to the ground. In 1645, during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms, Dundee was again besieged, this time by the Royalist Marquess of Montrose. The town was finally destroyed by Parliamentarian forces led by George Monck in 1651. The town played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Jacobite cause when John Graham of Claverhouse, 1st Viscount Dundee raised the Stuart standard on the Dundee Law in 1689. The town was held by the Jacobites in the 1715–16 rising, and on 6 January 1716 the Jacobite claimant to the throne, James VIII and III (the Old Pretender), made a public entry into the town. Many in Scotland, including many in Dundee, regarded him as the rightful king.
The economy of mediaeval Dundee centred on the export of raw wool, with the production of finished textiles being a reaction to recession in the 15th century. Two government Acts in the mid 18th century had a profound effect on Dundee’s industrial success: the textile industry was revolutionised by the introduction of large four-storey mills, stimulated in part by the 1742 Bounty Act which provided a government-funded subsidy on Osnaburg linen produced for export. Expansion of the whaling industry was triggered by the second Bounty Act, introduced in 1750 to increase Britain’s maritime and naval skill base. Dundee, and Scotland more generally, saw rapid population increase at end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century, with the city’s population increasing from 12,400 in 1751 to 30,500 in
The phasing out of the linen export bounty between 1825 and 1832 stimulated demand for cheaper textiles, particularly for cheaper, tough fabrics. The discovery that the dry fibres of jute could be lubricated with whale oil (of which Dundee had a surfeit, following the opening of its gasworks) to allow it to be processed in mechanised mills resulted in the Dundee mills rapidly converting from linen to jute, which sold at a quarter of the price of flax. Interruption of Prussian flax imports during the Crimean War and of cotton during the American Civil War resulted in a period of inflated prosperity for Dundee and the jute industry dominated Dundee throughout the latter half of the 19th century Unprecedented immigration, notably of Irish workers, led to accelerated urban expansion, and at the height of the industry’s success, Dundee supported 62 jute mills, employing some 50,000 workers. Cox Brothers, who owned the massive Camperdown Works in Lochee, were one of the largest jute manufacturers in Europe and employed more than 5,000 workers.
The rise of the textile industries brought with it an expansion of supporting industries, notably of the whaling, maritime and shipbuilding industries, and extensive development of the waterfront area started in 1815 to cope with increased demand for port capacity. At its height, 200 ships per year were built there, including Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic research vessel, the RRS Discovery. This ship is now on display at Discovery Point in the city. A significant whaling industry was also based in Dundee, largely existing to supply the jute mills with whale oil. Whaling ceased in 1912 and shipbuilding ceased in 1981.

Michigan — for the sake of keeping its existence post-bankruptcy, Chrysler Group LLC — which currently supported Fiat SpA — States have bought a machine building plant in Michigan. Takeover of the majority stake of the previous factory owners, Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and Hyundai Motor Co. Manufacturer of origin Country Uncle Sam now has full authority against the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA) located in Dundee, accounting effective 31 August, Bloomberg was quoted as saying. The financial talks has yet to be discussed further. In 2003, the factory was producing four-cylinder engines to Chrysler. Well, this business strategy will facilitate access for Chrysler to manufacture car engines of Fiat. Currently, the original manufacturer of Italy has a 20 percent stake in the Auburn Hills and will grow 5 percent again by producing energy-efficient machine in the United States under the support help bankrupt the Government. Chrysler might just be producing four-cylinder engines for Fiat. It said Ed Kim, an analyst with AutoPacific in Tustin, California. He argued, ECHO is indeed a worthy plant to be owned. However, the presence of Fiat will create relationships with hard ECHO continues, especially after the Chrsyler and Fiat small-capacity engine production touting for Fiat.
