1903 Henry Ford founded with eleven other investors in Detroit, Ford Motor Company. A car from Ford should be a low-priced car for the general public. Ford more vehicles decided to build on more favorable terms and developed with his engineers machines for automotive parts production and new assembly methods. With the invention of the first "production line" could be positioned at fixed stations workers, while the chassis was pulled for mounting all parts of the vehicle on a thick rope from one station to another.
This principle perfected Ford until the last decisive development of the machine-operated production line, which allowed an accurate assembly of the right parts at the right time along the route. Only then could the great demand for the legendary Model T, the Tin Lizzy, are satisfied. The first vehicle produced in series broke all records. With the reliable and most inexpensive vehicle Ford managed to make the American people mobile and to write automobile history.
Henry Ford and his son Edsel bought 1919 shares of all minority shareholders and became the sole owners of the company. Until 1972, the Model T was the best-selling car in the world. Today Ford is the fifth largest car manufacturer in the world. For the empire of the carmaker, which have their headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, were temporarily brands Jaguar, Aston Martin and Land Rover.
Also in the development of cars from Volvo and Mazda Ford was involved. The names Lincoln and Mercury still belong to Ford today.
