Henry Ford, founder of American car company Ford

アメ車 フォード社創業者ヘンリーフォード

“Ford Motor Company” was founded by Henry Ford on June 16, 1903.

Born in Michigan in 1863, Henry Ford grew up on a rural farm.
From his childhood, he showed an interest and talent in machines, assembling junk and repairing a friend’s watch.

Also, Henry Ford established “Ford Motor” in 1903, but failed several times before establishing “Ford Motor”.

Despite repeated failures, Henry Ford had a strong vision of “mass-producing low-cost, high-quality automobiles,” and greatly changed the automobile industry.

No matter how many times you fail, the attitude of repeating the challenge is similar to Mr. Dyson!

 

Meeting with Ford and Thomas Edison was a turning point

 

 

トーマスエジソン

Henry Ford said it was Thomas Edison who convinced him that his car-making direction was right.

The two first met on August 11, 1896. A meeting of representatives of the Edison Electric Company was held in New York, and Ford was also present at the dinner to deepen fellowship.

During the dinner with Edison, Ford talked about charging the vehicle storage battery.
He said that it would be a big business opportunity for electric companies.

At that time, there was a mixture of steam, gasoline, and electric vehicles, but the topic of the dinner continued to talk about the superiority of electric vehicles.

Ford listened in silence, but Edison became interested when he learned that he had built a gasoline-powered automobile.

Edison explained that electric cars only work near power plants, and the heavy batteries are also flaws.

Steam cars are out of the question because they have to carry the boiler and fire source.

Ford’s gasoline car had its own power unit and had high potential.
Ford was still hesitant, but Edison, who had the best knowledge of electricity in the world, asserted that a gasoline engine was more suitable as a power source than a motor. I was convinced that my thoughts were correct.

Ford popularizes American cars for the masses

アメ車フォードクラシック

In the days when automobiles were first introduced, cars were vehicles for the rich.
However, at that time, “Ford Motor Company” acted to change the automobile industry in order to make the automobile a vehicle for the masses.

In 1908, the automobile that became the key to realizing this was sold.
It’s a Ford Model T.

Aiming to create a “low-cost, high-quality automobile,” Ford devised a production method.

It was a method of mass production by assembly line that developed a line production method using a belt conveyor.

⭐️The task of building a car has been broken down so that you can do certain tasks accurately in less time.

⭐️As a result of increased efficiency in production, the cost of building cars has also decreased.

⭐️The price of a car in this era is normal for cars over $2,000. Ford sells for $850.

 

The Model T Ford shook the American auto industry.
The Model T Ford, with its low price and high quality, became a big hit.

At that time, the average annual income in the United States was around $600, which was not enough for anyone to buy a car.
However, compared to the original car, it can be said that it has become a presence that many people can afford because of its “lower price and higher quality”.

It became a big hit product that brought great demand for automobiles to the American market and raised a lot of sales.

Even now, many companies use the line production method (assembly line work), and it can be said that Ford was the catalyst for this. Toyota, on the other hand, has greatly improved the flow of production, and now uses a cell production system to increase productivity and reduce costs.

Ford builds a car that fits your needs

The mass-market Model T was followed by the more capable Model A. After that, the sporty-looking Mustang was sold, and the company continued to create unique products that met customer needs. In this way, it can be said that Ford’s success was due to the fact that the distinctive automobile that met the needs was a big hit.

Ford withdraws from the Japanese market

Ford, which produced popular models such as Ford T and Mustang, decided to withdraw from the Japanese market in 2016. There are many domestic automobile manufacturers in Japan, and the sales volume of American cars is extremely small. Ford is believed to have given up on the unprofitable Japanese market early on.

henry ford quote

Henry Ford’s quotes include “Chop your own wood and get double heat” and “If you think you can do it you can. If you think you can’t you can’t. Either way you’re right.” .

It takes time for your efforts to bear fruit.
Many people get bored, lost, and frustrated by then.

 

Even if you don’t know the facts, just move forward.
As you move forward and act, the facts will come to you.

 

Most successful people move on while others waste time.
This is what I have seen with my own eyes for many years.

 

Failure is an opportunity to try again smarter.
A serious failure is nothing to be ashamed of.
Shame lives in the heart that fears failure.

 

Indecision is sometimes worse than wrong action.
