Amway was founded in Ada, Michigan, USA, by twolifelong friends and business partners, Jay Van Andel and Rich DeVos. They started business in 1959 out of the basements of their homes. Rich and Jay believed owning a business allowed people to have greater control of their lives and provide better for their families. So they built the Amway business to make it easier for other people to start and grow their own businesses. The founders’ entrepreneurial spirit continues to fuel Amway. Today, Amway is one of the largest privately held companies in the United States. It’s still owned and run by sons of the founders.
