It is Ford Heritage Month and AG Automobiles, exclusive dealers of Ford Motor Company is celebrating Ford Motors’ 111th Anniversary during this month of June. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, the Ford 3s centre at Abdullahpur, Uttara has been transformed into a Ford history exhibition gallery where customers and guests can revisit the early days of Ford Motor Company and learned about the vision of Henry Ford and the company he started that “put the world on wheels”.
One hundred and eleven years ago, on June 16, 1903, Henry Ford and 11 original investors signed incorporation papers to form Ford Motor Company, starting with a dream, $28,000 in cash, some blue prints and tools. Globally Ford cars set the standards in terms of safety, innovation, fuel efficiency and performance.
As a part of the heritage month, AG Automobiles is also organizing an event ‘Night at the Movies’ on 21st June. The objective is to showcase Ford’s rich history on the silver screen. Putting a spotlight on the company’s iconic role in films over the decades, Night at the Movies brought Ford fans together in Bangladesh.
