Yup, DaimlerChrysler bought Fokker before it went out of business. I am not sure if it was Daimler or already DaimlerChrysler. Anyway the CEO of Daimler at that time (forgot his name) called Fokker the "Love Baby" of the company at the moment of the takeover. Sadly, they were lying and forced Fokker to go banktrupt.
