A Brief History of Ford
Ford was founded in 1903 by Henry Ford, and is the largest family-owned company in the world.
Ford experienced immediate success in the automotive industry. In 1909, Henry Ford introduced the assembly line method which streamlined factories and allowed Ford to produce 18,000 Model Ts in one year. By 1919, Ford was producing half of America’s cars. Like most automakers, WWII forced Ford to shift its focus to producing military vehicles. After WWII Ford struggled with the death of Henry Ford and his son, but by the 50’s Ford had recovered.
In 1955, Ford introduced the legendary Thunderbird, and in 1964 the Mustang. Despite these iconic models, Ford struggled in the 1990’s and 2000’s, nearly going bankrupt in the process. They have since rebranded and dug themselves out of the financial hole they were in. The Ford Focus is a big reason why, along with a number of other new models that stressed fuel-efficiency and performance. Ford has recovered nicely, and is developing its next generation of economical vehicles.
