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.
