Ford Motor Company's first plant was a rented former wagon factory on Mack Avenue in Detroit. From 1903 until 1905, this crew of workers assembled Ford automobiles from purchased parts, then inspected, tuned, and prepared each car for shipping. Using this system of small assembly operation, the men produced an average of fifteen finished automobiles each day.
