A month after the Ford Motor Company was established, the first Ford car was assembled at a plant on Mack Avenue in Detroit.In the early days of Ford, only a few cars were assembled per day, and they were built by hand by small groups of workers from parts made to order by other companies. With the introduction of the Model T in 1908, Ford succeeded in his mission to produce an affordable, efficient and reliable automobile for everyone: within a decade, nearly half the cars in America were Model Ts. The sensational demand for the Model T led Ford to develop mass-production methods, including large production plants,the use of standardized, interchangeable parts and, in 1913, the world's first moving assembly line for cars.In 1914, to further improve productivity, Ford introduced the $5 daily wage for an eight-hour day for his workers (up from $2.34 for nine hours),setting a standard for the industry.During the late 1910s and early 1920s, Ford began construction of a massive industrial complex along the banks of the River Rougein Dearborn, Michigan. The plant combined all the components necessary for auto production, including a glass factory, steel mill and assembly line.To this day ford has manufactured passenger cars, trucks ,tractors as well as automotive parts and accessories.
