We spoke to Marc Watson about the return of Suzuki to the area. Suzuki which adds a new price range to compliment existing West End brands will be releasing a new car every year for the next four years.
It’s taken over 100 years for Suzuki to become one of the world’s leading car manufacturers. Michio Suzuki founded the Suzuki loom works in the small Japanese village of Hamamatsu. He created a loom that was different from the rest. It was faster, more productive and easier for everyone to use. It came from a philosophy about a way of life that no one had considered before. Michio Suzuki believed in innovative technology for people. Suzuki employs over 45,000 and has 35 main production facilities in 23 countries and 133 distributors in 192 countries.According to statistics from the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA), Suzuki is Japan’s second-largest manufacturer of small cars and trucks.
