Disambiguation Links – Ford Motor Company (S/F)
The Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker which has its headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. The company was founded by Henry Ford in 1903 (and is still controlled by his family), and it designs, produces, and sells many different kinds of vehicles under the Ford brand (and luxury cars under the Lincoln brand). The company also previously produced heavy trucks, tractors, and automotive components, but no longer does so. Ford is perhaps best-known for introducing methods for the large-scale manufacture of cars and the management of an industrial workforce using elaborate manufacturing sequences via assembly lines. Ford is the second-largest US-based automaker and the fifth-largest in the world.
