Henry Ford

Henry FordBorn:1863 Died:1947

Henry Ford was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production.

Henry Ford did not invent the car. In Which many people think he did. But no, he mastered the assembly line, and had a affordable car for the common wealth people.

Ford's manufacturing principles were adopted by countless other industries. Henry Ford went beyond his 1907 goal of making cars affordable for all; he changed the habits of a nation, and shaped its very character.

Although the Model T was the ninth automobile model Ford created, it would be the first model which would achieve wide popularity.

Cars changed the lifestyles of people, and how they enjoyed their free time.

In 1914, Ford worker's wages were raised to $5 a day -- an excellent wage, and they soon proved him right by buying their own Model Ts.

The mass production techniques Henry Ford championed eventually allowed Ford Motor Company to turn out one Model T every 24 seconds!
