Summary

In 1932 General Motors bought Packard Electric Co., of Warren Ohio, (which had been founded in 1890, and spun off the Packard Motor Car Co. in 1902). In 1943, Sunlight Electric's small motor production was consolidated with Packard. It was later renamed Packard Electric Division-General Motors Corporation (Warren Ohio).

Sunlight and Packard built motors and grinders for Sears under Craftsman source code 115.

This firm had a Canadian subsidiary, Packard Electric Co., Ltd.
