Suzuki Manufacturing of America Corp. recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary.
The Rome, Ga., plant was built in the United States in 2001 to demonstrate Suzuki’s commitment to its ATV business.
Initially the plant built the all-new 400cc Eiger and 500cc Vinson ATVs. Currently, it assembles the award-winning Kingquad line of ATVs for the North American and global markets.
“As we celebrate 10 years as a company, we reflect back on the last couple of years which have been very difficult due to the overall economic situation and its effect on the entire ATV industry,” Nobuyuki Yamane, president of Suzuki Manufacturing of America Corp., said in a press release. “We look forward to the future and a rebound in the ATV industry as we focus our Management Plan for FY2011 as we look ‘10 Years and Beyond’ as a company.”
The plant has recently increased production capacity and recalled some team members affected by previous work force reductions, the press release stated.
