The company’s history of innovation runs still deeper. In 1911, Kettering invented the first viable electric starter, derived from a cash register motor, which were used by Cadillac in 1912. In 1915, he invented the Delco-Light, a portable internal combustion power and light generator intended for those without access to the electrical grid system. In 1918, General Motors acquired United Motors Company which contained Delco, among other manufacturers. In 1985, GM merged Delco Electronics with Hughes Aircraft to form Hughes Electronics Corporation as an independent subsidiary. In 1930, Delco developed the Cold Carburetion System, an auto carburetion system functioning as both a standard carburetor and a fuel injection system. In 1956, the company invented a transistorized hybrid signal-seeking car radio using both vacuum tubes and transistors in its circuitry.
