Global recognition of the trademark - with acceptance and reputation

Starting business in 1909 as Suzuki Loom Works, the firm was incorporated in 1920. Since foundation in Hamamatsu, Japan, SUZUKI has steadily grown and expanded. During the post-W.W.II period, our auxiliary bicycle engine 'Power Free'* which earned a good reputation was followed by our 125cc motorcycle 'Colleda', and later by the pioneering 'Suzulight'* minicar that helped bring Japan's automotive revolution. Each of these was epoch-making in their own right as they were developed and manufactured by optimising the most advanced technologies of that period. Today, constantly going forward to meet changing lifestyles, the SUZUKI name is seen on a full range of automobiles, motorcycles, outboard motors and related products such as motorised wheelchairs and industrial equipment. The trademark is recognised by people throughout the world as a brand of quality products that offer both reliability and originality. SUZUKI stands behind this global symbol with a sure determination to maintain this confidence in the future as well, never stopping in creating such advanced 'value-packed products'.
