Great Wall Motors Company Limited or aptly called Great Wall Motors, is an automobile manufacturer from China. The name of the company came from one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country, the Great Wall of China. It is currently the biggest SUV (sports utility vehicle) producer in China.
Despite the decline of SUV sales in China, Great Wall was still able to perform well. Matter-of-factly, they even rose three ranks higher and was considered as the seventh biggest automaker in China. During this time, they were able to produce over 675,000 units. They were able to export over 95,000 units as well.

Great Wall made their public offering on the Hong Kong stock exchange in the last quarter of 2003 and is the first private automobile manufacturer to become a public company. They are also considering on listing themselves in the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
Their sales in 2010 was only less than 400,000 units per year with exports not more than 50,000. However, their Haval H series is the 2nd bestselling SUV in China, split in two models, the Haval H3 and Haval H5.
Their sales boosted a year after with more than 480,000 units per year and was considered as the 10th largest in China. This big leap actually gave birth to the controversy of employment abuse. It was alleged that they only allow works to have one day off per week and their new hires were reported to have undergone a military-style training which lasted for months.
