From the Paper:

"Ford Motor Company was first established in 1903 when Henry Ford and eleven investors agreed to become an incorporated business. Henry Ford's goal in establishing the company was to produce an affordable line of vehicles for mass marketing. Ford became an industrial giant with the production and sale of the Model T. Over 15 million Model T's were introduced to the American public (Ford, n.d.). In 1925, Ford expanded into the luxury line of automobiles when it acquired the Lincoln Motor Company. Mid-priced cars fulfilled ford's major product lines in the 1930's when the Mercury division was created."
