Albert Champion started Champion Ignition Company to sell spark plugs. The name was changed a year later to AC Spark Plug Company. Is Albert Champion somehow connected with Champion Spark Plugs?

After losing control of Champion Ignition Company, Albert Champion founded the AC Spark Plug Company in 1908 in a Buick building in Flint, Michigan. It was purchased by General Motors Corporation in 1909 to supply the growing automobile company, and AC Spark Plug moved a few years later to a factory at Harriet Street and Industrial Avenue.
