Famous people in history: Henry Ford
Born July 30, 1863 in Dearborn, Michigan, Henry Ford's launched the Ford Motor Company in 1908. Ford improved upon his first horseless carriage by crafting the Model T, which was affordable, easy to drive, simple to repair, and allowed the Ford Company to post 100 percent gains in the first years of operation.
Arguably Ford's largest impact was on the manufacturing industry itself. He revolutionized manufacturing with the moving assemble line method of mass production. Ford earned his reputation as a leading businessman by attracting skilled workers with unparalleled steady wages and profit sharing. Henry Ford died in 1947 at the age of 83.
