In 1909, Michio Suzuki founded the Suzuki Loom Works in the small seacoast village of Hamamatsu, Japan. Business was booming and by 1937 he realised that he had to branch out into other avenues of business to diversify his company. Within two years he had built several prototype cars. By 1954, Suzuki was producing 6,000 motorcycles per month and had officially changed its name to Suzuki Motor Co.
Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese company that specialises in manufacturing compact automobiles and 4x4 vehicles, a full range of motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), outboard marine engines, wheelchairs and a variety of other small internal combustion engines.
Following on the success of his bicycles, Suzuki created an even more successful automobile: the 1955 Suzuki Suzulight.
Volkswagen AG purchased 19.9% of Suzuki Motor Corporation’s issued shares in 15 January 2010. VWis now the biggest shareholder in Suzuki.
Suzuki has one of the most progressive car production sites in South Asia. They have outstanding vehicles for travelling on chaotic city roads.
