In 1914, world famous car manufacturer Henry Ford invented an improved assembly process by installing the first conveyor belt-based assembly line in his car production plant in Michigan.
By reducing the assembly time, production costs were also reduced, increasing sales and thereby leading to the mass production of the famous Model T Ford. Being the first company to operate an assembly line process made Ford the world’s largest car manufacturer at that time.
Since then, numerous advances in technology and design have helped to create reliable materials handling and automation systems able to control the most complex of today’s assembly requirements.
