American Suzuki Motor Corporation, a subsidiary of Japan's Suzuki Motor Corporation, made the decision to stop selling vehicles in the United States after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2012. At the time, the company announced it would focus on its U.S. motorcycle, ATV and marine divisions. Although it no longer sells cars in the United States, Suzuki still honors any existing warranties and has turned its former dealerships into parts and service centers.
In January 2010, the Volkswagen Auto Group became Suzuki Motor Corporation's majority stockholder when it purchased 19.9 percent of the company's shares. As of 2015, the company's CEO is Osamu Suzuki, the great grandson of the company's founder Michio Suzuki and the fourth consecutive generation of the family to run the company. Founded in 1909 as the Suzuki Loom Works, the company once built weaving looms for Japan's silk industry.
