About Ford Motor Company
The Ford Motor Company (commonly referred to simply as “Ford”) is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford Motor Company’s Supplier Diversity Development (SDD) Program was started in 1978. Ford recognized that it had a social responsibility to provide opportunity to minority individuals and their communities. When Ford started this program there were few minority owned and operated companies with the capabilities to provide the goods and services purchased by Ford and other automotive manufacturers. At the direction of Henry Ford II, a program was designed to identify high potential minority business persons and assist them in growing their companies to competitive positions in our industry. Ford Motor Company extends their diverse program to include businesses categorize as Minority-Owned, Women-Owned, Veteran-Owned, and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses, as well as businesses located in Historically Underutilized Business regions (HUB Zone) and Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB).
