Ford Motor Company entered the business world without fanfare on June 16, 1903, when Henry Ford and eleven associates signed incorporation papers and founded the company. With an abundance of faith but only $28,000 in cash, the pioneering industrialists gave birth to what was to become one of the world's largest corporations. Few companies are as closely identified with the history and development of America throughout the 20th century as Ford Motor Company, and perhaps no other American firm is as well known around the globe.
At the time of its incorporation, Ford Motor Company was a tiny operation in a converted Detroit wagon shop staffed with about 10 people. By the end of 1913, just 10 years later, the company was producing half the cars in the United States.
Paralleling Ford Motor Company's domestic growth was a foreign expansion program that began just one year after the company was formed. On August 17, 1904, the first foreign branch, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd., was incorporated in Walkerville, Ontario. Production at this modest new plant began in early 1905.
From this small beginning grew a global network of manufacturing and assembly plants, sales operations, parts depots and dealers, with Ford Motor Company represented in more than 200 nations and territories spanning six continents.
Today, Ford Motor Company is the world's largest producer of trucks and the second-largest producer of cars. The company has operations in more than 30 countries, and employs more than 340,000 men and women at its factories, laboratories and offices around the world.
Additionally, about 60,000 companies worldwide supply Ford Motor Company with goods and services. The company's annual sales exceed the gross national products of many industrialized nations. In 1998, Ford Motor Company sold more than 6.8 million vehicles worldwide.
