The History Of Ford
Henry Ford established the company in 1903 and, five years later, produced the model T, one of the earliest motor vehicles as we might recognise them today.In the 1930s, Ford cars were divided into two classes - passenger and light commercial vehicles. During World War 2, the Ford GPW model - the company’s counterpart to the Jeep Willys - was manufactured for the Army.The firm continued to develop after the war and, in 1964, the Ford Mustang was created - at the time, it was created as a sports car. Both the Ford Mustang and Falcon, created during the 1960s, helped to considerably boost sales. Ford was selling so many cars at the time, it had to reduce its production volumes to avoid paying enormous penalties for exceeding 60% of the market.
In 1980, the Ford Escort was released in Europe, but it did not sell very well due to its unattractive body style. The Sierra and Scorpio models arrived a little later, but the quality problems during this period cast a shadow over the entire company.During the 1990s, the company worked closely with its German branch, creating the very successful Mondeo and Focus models. Today, Ford is the fifth largest car manufacturer in the world and the second largest in the United States alone. By 2008, it had produced around 5.5 million cars, with roughly 213,000 employees in 90 facilities all over the world. In 2010, the company’s net profit was 6.6 billion dollars.
