"Ford opens manufacturing archives in Australia By FEN on 28 November 2011


Ford Motor Company has opened Ford Australia Archives, one of only four historical archive centres in the company worldwide."


"The archives continues to acquire and preserve significant company materials, including paper, audio-visual and electronic records - that document the history of the company, its vehicles, subsidiaries, employees, plants and policies.

“The goal of the archives however is not just to collect material. It is to collect, catalogue, store and allow use of that material to help us tell our story,” Graziano said.

“With more than 86 years of history here in Australia, there is a lot to work with. We have materials here spanning as far back as our first days in Australia.”

Graziano said the collection had been made possible because of the dedication of a few employees who were passionate about retaining the history of Ford in Australia."
