Mazda Motor Corporation celebrated its 100th anniversary today with an employee event at its headquarters in Hiroshima, Japan. Approximately 500 people including executives, employees and representatives of workers’ union and affiliated companies attended the ceremony.

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,” said Akira Marumoto, Representative Director, President and CEO.
Mazda plans to continue celebrations throughout the year, including at the Geneva International Motor Show in March with anniversary themed exhibits and during Mazda Open Day 2020 in May an open house event at Mazda’s headquarters.
