Grumman

The Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation was founded in 1929 by Leroy Grumman, Jake Swirbul and William Schwendler. Its base was an old Cox-Klemin Aircraft Co. factory in Baldwin on Long Island, New York. All of the early Grumman employees were former Loening employees. The company was named for Grumman because he was its largest investor. The first Grumman aircraft was for the US Navy, the Grumman FF-1, a biplane with retractable landing gear, which was followed by a number of other similar and successful designs. During WW2, Grumman became known for its US Navy fighter aircraft, the F4F Wildcat and F6F Hellcat, and for its torpedo bomber the TBF Avenger. Grumman's first jet aircraft, the F9F Panther, became operational in 1949. A number of amphibians such as the Duck, Goose and Albatross were also produced. The company's big postwar successes came in the 1960s with the A-6 Intruder and E-2 Hawkeye and in the 1970s with the F-14 Tomcat. In 1969 the company changed its name to Grumman Aerospace Corporation, and in 1978 it sold the Grumman-American Division to Gulfstream Aerospace.
Grumman's independent existence ended in 1994 when it was acquired by Northrop Corporation to form Northrop Grumman.
