SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, January 4, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Happy 100th Birthday, WardsAuto! It has been a wild ride for the automotive intelligence, media, and events company; however, after a century in the business, WardsAuto is memorializing on all that has been accomplished, and all that is to come.
The origin of WardsAuto dates back to 1924, when Al Ward initiated the concept of sharing vital automobile manufacturers’ production statistics with the general public.
Ward’s Automotive Reports (WAR) was the first newsletter of its kind, providing exclusive coverage of this niche market. As a reliable source of information, WAR has played an instrumental role in the automotive industry.
Today, WardsAuto has evolved beyond WAR, offering data-driven insights that have helped maintain its leadership in the industry. With the integration of TU-Automotive’s events and the research expertise of Wards Intelligence, WardsAuto has become a force to be reckoned with.
“We are extremely proud to be going into our 100th year,” says Fiona Kyle, Vice President, Automotive. “It’s incredible to look back on the past century in automotive and see how far we’ve come. From horses and buggies to electric and self-driving vehicles, it truly is a fascinating industry to be a part of. We are looking forward to the next 100!”
As an organization, WardsAuto remains steadfast in continuing the legacy Al Ward set forth by providing the automotive sector with essential knowledge, coverage, and community vital to doing business.
WardsAuto is thrilled to celebrate all that has been accomplished throughout the past century, along with all that is to come in the next.
