Ford Motor Company was founded over 100 years ago by an American.
Henry Ford and his family built the business from scratch and still own major shares of the company. The company is also owned by stockholders and investors.
The Ford Motor Company is now a global enterprise. And although the company produces and sells vehicles all over the globe, the headquarters are are in Dearborn, Michigan-U.S.A. The Company employs people all over the world, but the profits (or lack of) from the global enterprises are returned to the parent company in the U.S.A.
For more information you can go to the corporate site:
Henry's family also created the "Ford Fund" and the "Ford Foundation" which are non-profit and charitable organizations that exist to give back to the community.
The Community(s) that they "give back" to is/are also mainly Americans.
For more information about that please visit this page:
Even during the auto industry's economic troubled times, Ford has continued to donate and support charitable events locally and nationally:
(some recent press released info regarding those activities)Source(s): in the auto business since 1983 (and proud to a part of the Ford's extended family)

The stock holders do not own the co. Its owned by the family, The share holders help make the decision however if the family does not agree,Then the family has the final word so you see what is wrong with ford, Bill ford does not have a clue he is not like his father or grandfather they would fire him on the spot. They also have forgotten how to design cars just take a look at the mustang give me a break ,I am so tired of that car the way it looks , It should be turning heads , But now its just another car, good luck

Ford is a publicly held company, the stockholders own it. The Ford family owns quite a bit of the stock. As to the nationality of the majority of the stockholders, likely they are American, though a significant part is probably held by non Americans.
