Brief History of the Marque: Suzuki

Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation company producing a range of automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs, outboard motors, wheelchairs, and a variety of other small combustion-powered engine products.

Suzuki has 15 automotive manufacturing plants in 14 countries and 133 distributors in 119 countries.

In 1909, Michio Suzuki founded the Suzuki Loom Company in the small seacoast village of Hamamatsu, Japan. Business boomed as Suzuki built weaving looms for Japan's giant silk industry. Suzuki's only desire was to build better, more user-friendly looms. In 1929, Michio Suzuki invented a new type of weaving machine, which was exported overseas. Suzuki filed as many as 120 patents and utility model rights. For the first 30 years of the company's existence, its focus was on the development and production of these exceptionally complex machines.
