On June 16, 1903, Ford Motor Company was founded and the first vehicle that Ford produced was the Model A. Shortly after the debut of the Model A, Ford had a breakthrough with the production of their Model T that changed the automobile industry forever.
The Ford Motor Company was the first to produce automobiles in an assembly line. Something that most people do not know however, is that Henry got his genius assembly line idea after a tour of a pig slaughter house, and witnessed an assembly line for the first time. In 1916, 55% of new and second hand cars used by the citizens of the world were Ford Model T's. Ford has been selling new and second hand cars for over 100 years. Ford took over operations of the Lincoln Motor Company in 1925, but kept the brand name as Lincoln, as many patrons at the time used Lincoln cars. Ford decided to keep the name because it had gained popularity amongst the community. There was no limit in sight for the Ford Company early on, and Henry believed in expanding as far as his company's resources would allow. Henry Ford's company has remained on the cutting edge of vehicle production technology for over a century. The Thunderbird was released on October 22, 1954, and was considered by many to be a very successful new model. Henry Ford's son, Edsel Ford, who had been running the company as CEO since Henry retired, died in 1943.
Ten years prior to the release of the Thunderbird, Henry had to once again take control of his company and reclaim his position as CEO. He only did so for 2 years until he was forced to retire for the second time, and let Henry Ford II take over. Henry Ford II was born on September 4, 1917. He took over the Ford Motor Company in 1943, for Henry after his son Edsel died. Henry Ford II continued his duties as CEO until 1979 when he resigned. Even then he held minor responsibilities in the company. He remained with Ford Motors until he died in 1987. Today, Ford Motor Company is one of the largest purveyors of second hand cars in the world and employs 213,000 people. Taking in $146.3 billion in revenue of the fiscal year ending in December, 2008, Ford and its satellite companies like Quality Approved have avoided bankruptcy filings.
