Ferranti-Packard Ltd. was the Canadian division of Ferranti's global manufacturing empire, formed by the 1958 merger of Ferranti Electric and Packard Electric. For several years in the post-war era, the company underwent dramatic expansion and repeatedly almost became a major computer supplier, but eventually shed various divisions and returned to becoming an electrical grid supplier once again. The company was purchased in 1998 by the Austrian company, VA TECH.

Published by: McGill-Queen's University Press. 4 Ferranti Builds a Manufacturing Base in Canada. From 1914 to 1945, the fortunes of Packard Electric and the Ferranti Electrical Co. of Canada rose and fell to the rhythm of international events. This country could not avoid being pulled into the powerful currents of change sweeping across the world, and the electrical industry experienced a three-decade-long financial roller-coaster ride. The responses of Ferranti and of Packard, as we shall see in the next two chapters, reflected very different corporate cultures.

Through their case-study of the evolution of a relatively small manufacturer such as Ferranti-Packard, Ball and Vardalas address a number of broader themes in the history of Canadian business and technology. Ferranti-Packard was British-owned and thus provides a revealing subject for the authors' investigation of the impact of foreign direct investment on Canadian industrial and technological capabilities. An important theme in this analysis is the interplay of British and North American corporate cultures. Ball and Vardalas explain the complex nature of technical and managerial relationships between subsidiaries and parent firms, demonstrating that Ferranti-Packard did not passively receive parent-firm expertise but was highly innovative in product design and marketing philosophy. The association between government and business in the development and direction of technology in Canadian industries since the Second World War is also explored.
