Just recently, Mazda Motor Corporation marked its 100th anniversary with an employee affair at its head office in Hiroshima, Japan.


Centenary official comment by Akira Marumoto, Representative Director, President and CEO:

“Mazda originated as a company producing cork and then took the path to manufacturing automobiles. Now, our cars have found friends with many customers from over 130 countries and regions. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the customers, dealers, suppliers, business partners and the local community, who have supported us over the years through good and bad times, to whom we owe our 100 years of existence. As we look ahead to the next 100 years, we will continue to put people first and cherish our ‘uniqueness of co-creating with others.’ As we strengthen co-creation and cooperation with all those connected with the company, we will continue to challenge ourselves to create unique products, technologies, and experiences that our customers love.”

Year Long Celebration

Mazda intends to prolong commemorations during the course of the year, including at the Geneva International Motor Show in March with anniversary themed exhibitions and during Mazda Open Day 2020 in May an open house event at Mazda’s headquarters.

A ceremony to observe the 100th anniversary of its organization took place recently at an auditorium in the company’s headquarters in Hiroshima to convey gratitude to all shareholders who have backed the company and reasserted resolution for the next one hundred years of future. Roughly 500 people including executives, employees and representatives of workers’ union and associated businesses attended the observance.
