"One hundred years ago, my great-grandfather had a vision to build safe and efficient transportation for everyone," said Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford.

"I am proud he was able to bring the freedom of mobility to millions by making cars affordable to families and that his vision of serving people still drives everything we do today."

By 2017, virtually all Ford vehicles will be built off nine core platforms, boosting manufacturing efficiency, while giving customers the features, fuel efficiency and technology they want anywhere in the world.

Today, Ford builds vehicles on 15 platforms and has the freshest line-up in the industry.

"Henry Ford's core principles of quality parts, workflow, division of labour and efficiency still resonate today," said John Fleming, Ford Executive Vice President of Global Manufacturing.

"Building on that tradition, we're accelerating our efforts to standardise production, make factories more flexible and introduce advanced technologies to efficiently build the best vehicles possible at the best value for our customers no matter where they live."

Ford's recent expansions in global manufacturing and production have helped to retain 130,000 hourly and salaried jobs around the world.

They also put the company on pace to produce six million vehicles in 2013 - approximately 16 vehicles every 60 seconds around the world.
