Kia Motors was established in 1944 and is South Korea's oldest auto manufacturer. The etymology of the word comes from the Korean words "ki" meaning to come out and "a" referring to Asia, combining to form "rising out of Asia". The original Kia produced steel tubing and bicycle parts, but quickly started to produce motorcycles in 1952. The first Kia cars were made in 1974, but never had a wide release out of South Korea and the surrounding Asian countries. A partnership with Ford in 1986 brought about the manufacture of more Kia models as well as some Ford models for distribution in Asia. By 1994 the company had released its first set of vehicles sold exclusively in the United States, and the company kept growing. However, expansion surpassed profits and coupled with the Asian financial crisis Kia was forced into bankruptcy in 1997 and the majority interest was purchased by rival Hyundai Motor Company. The company is currently held between Ford, Hyundai, and some private investors with no one owning 50%. Kia has since grown and in 2010 opened a brand new manufacturing center in West Point, Georgia, USA.
