Changing the world, one automotive at a time
Henry Ford was born in an ordinary farming family, moved to the city as a young man, worked a few jobs to learn the ropes of the trade, and then went on to lead the industrial revolution in the United States by manufacturing automobiles which were affordable by most American families. The economical horseless carriage was born.
He was able to do this by pioneering the assembly line method of mass production. He paid his workers more than anyone else and took care of them and their families which was unheard of back when workers were little better than serfs. His vision helped raise the standard of living for American families across the country and eventually the world.
Ford helped changed the way the world moved and the way society functioned by allowing normal, everyday folk to obtain the means of affordable, individual transportation. He was a man of incredible energy and idealism, willing to challenge the status quo at every turn to materialize his vision for a better future. A true captain of industry.
