The story begins in Springwells Township, Wayne County, Michigan, on 30 July 1863, when Henry was the first-born of William and Mary Ford’s six children. Growing up on a prosperous family farm, he was educated in a one-room school, where he showed an early interest in all things mechanical. This interest would develop into true genius and earn him the accolade of ‘one of the greatest industrialists in the world’. Our vision is to be the world's leading company for automotive products and services. We’re proud to say that we have become the most popular car and van maker in the UK. For 100 years, we’ve led the way in automotive firsts that make driving more enjoyable and safer for our customers. From innovations such as Lane Departure Warning on the all new Focus, to Active Park Assist on the C-MAX, we’ve never stopped pioneering new technologies. At Ford, we’re committed to making our cars safer, smarter, more efficient and more attainable for everyone.
