SUZUKI About Us
Suzuki is one of the top-10 car manufacturers in the world.
We’ve been around since 1909, which means we’ve got more than a century of engineering milestones behind us – and we think the future looks pretty exciting, too. Why? Because we’ve always made products that people want in their lives – and that’s never going to change.
Suzuki’s journey began in 1909, producing looms in Hamamatsu, Japan. The company evolved over time, designing and manufacturing its first Motorcycle (Colleda) and first car (Suzulight) in 1955. You can see more here http://www.globalsuzuki.com/corporate/history/index.html
Sales in the UK commenced in 1963, firstly with the importation of Motorcycles and later, Cars, ATVs and Marine engines.
Today, Suzuki GB PLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, importing product from all over the world. Based in Milton Keynes since 2006, the company continues to enjoy success in the UK with a recognisable heritage, growing product line-up and a reputation for quality and service.
Added to the global innovation in vehicles, Suzuki GB continues to innovate in other ways. In recent years, highlights have been Moto GP on BT Sport sponsorship, MK Dons Football Club title partners, London Olympics marine engine supplier. It is important to us that we continue to create interest and have these stories to tell as part of our history.
Suzuki GB have had a long term relationship with Ben, who are an active partner working within the automotive industry supporting colleagues who need help and improving the health and wellbeing of our industry workforce.
Since moving to Milton Keynes Suzuki GB have also established a relationship with Willen Hospice, who care for all people affected by life limiting illness in the community. 2014 saw the start of the relationship with Milton Keynes Football Club (MK Dons), whilst also supporting the Milton Keynes Dons Sport and Education Trust (MK Dons SET) which is an independent charity aligned to Milton Keynes Dons using the brand of the club as one of its tools of engagement to improve the lives and experiences of its local community.
