The Birth of the Suzuki Brand
Did you know that Suzuki was founded by Michio Suzuki who started a business by building weaving looms for Japan’s giant silk industry, in the small seacoast village of Hamamatsu, Japan in 1909? Despite the success of his looms, Suzuki believed that his company would benefit from diversification, and decided that building a small car would be the most practical new venture. The new project began in 1937, and within two years Suzuki had completed several compact prototype cars.
After World War II the cotton market collapsed in 1951. After the war, the Japanese had a great need for affordable, reliable personal transportation.
In 1970 an automobile plant was built in Kosai, Shizuoka.
The Suzuki company was founded by Michio Suzuki, and its current Chairman is Osamu Suzuki, the fourth adopted son-in-law in a row to run the company. Osamu Suzuki, the 91-year-old Chairman of Suzuki Motor Corporation, is due to retire, handing over to his Toshihiro.
