The manufacturing of Suzuki products began in 1909 by Suzuki Loom Works in Hamamatsu Japan. Suzuki Loom Works was organized in 1920 as Suzuki Loom Manufacturing Co., the predecessor to Suzuki Motor Corporation. Since its foundation in Hamamatsu, Japan, Suzuki has steadily grown and expanded. During the post-W.W.II period, Suzuki’s motorized bike Power Free was followed by its 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 optimizing 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 motorcycles, automobiles, outboard marine motors, and related products such as motorized wheelchairs and industrial equipment. The trademark is recognized by people throughout the world as a brand of quality products that offer both reliability and originality.
