Rolls Royce is popular not only for its luxurious cars but also it is the second highest manufacturer of Aircraft engines in the whole world.
Friedrick Henry Royce was born in Alwalton in England in 1863. His family used to run a wheat flour mill. But it didn't see good sales. That's why they shifted to London. Friedrick was just 9 when his father breathed his last.
After growing up, with the help of his aunt, he went to a town in England and began working in the Northern Railway. After few years, he returned back to London and joined a Light and power company where his work was to work with the street lights. In this way he had saved some of his income.
In 1884, with one of his friends, he opened a start up named FH Royce and company. This company made small electric parts. After ten years, the company had started making Dynamo generators and other good equipments.
From here starts the journey of Charles Royce. He had a big showroom in London and he was impressed with the car of Friedrick Henry Royce.
Unfortunately, Rolls died in an aeroplane accident and after that, Royce didn't lose hope. He kept marching forward with his designs and manufacturing.
But unfortunately, in 1933, Royce breathed his last. In 1951, the company made its first luxury car. Gradually, it provided jobs to almost 80,000 people and became the 14th largest company of Britain in terms of man power. Towards 1989, Rolls Royce was sold out to BMW and Volkswagen.
