Suzuki Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Minami-ku, Hamamatsu, Japan.
In 1909, "Michio Suzuki" (1887–1982) founded the Suzuki Loom Works in the small seacoast village of Hamamatsu, Japan. These first Suzuki motor vehicles were powered by a then-innovative, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-cylinder engine. The Company was producing its first Car "Suzulight" in 1955. Today Suzuki is among the world’s largest automakers, and a major brand name in important markets, including Japan and India, but no longer sells cars in North America.
