mazda familia mazda logoCorporatia Mazda Motor este un producator japonez de automobile, cu sediul in Hiroshima, Japonia.

in 2007, Mazda a produs aproape 1,3 milioane de vehicule pentru vânzari internationale. Cele mai multe (aproape un milion) au fost produse in fabricile japoneze ale companiei, restul provenind din alte colturi ale lumii.

The Origin and Meaning of “Mazda”
The company’s name, “Mazda,” derives from Ahura Mazda, a god of the earliest civilizations in
western Asia. We have interpreted Ahura Mazda, the god of wisdom, intelligence and harmony, as
a symbol of the origin of both Eastern and Western civilizations, and also as a symbol of
automotive culture. It incorporates a desire to achieve world peace and the development of the
automobile manufacturing industry. It also derives from the name of our founder, Jujiro Matsuda
Mazda was established in 1920 as Toyo Cork Kogyo, Ltd. We
leveraged the mechanical technology of those early years to change
our name to Toyo Kogyo, and in March 1931 we manufactured our
first three-wheel truck, laying the foundation for future growth to
evalve into an automobile manufacturer.
In the three-wheel truck field, where almost all engines were imported
at that time, we emphasized R&D with the goal of achieving a totally
Japan-built product. Our recognition that technical capability was the
driving force behind corporate growth continued after World War II,
and R&D continued into basic technologies, especially materials. At
the same time we introduced a range of new industrial technologies
including shell casting, hailed as a revolution in casting, continuous
gas immersion technology, Alfing technology and ductile casting
manufacturing technology. The technological expertise and experience
we gained laid the groundwork for the future development of the
rotary engine.
The Region and Mazda – And August 6, 1945
Mazda enjoyed a wide range of benefits thanks to the geographical
circumstances of Hiroshima. For example, the region already had
considerable technical experience in steel product fabrication and
shipbuilding, to name two, and as a result had an extensive number of
highly-trained people with crucial knowledge and skills. Mazda also
made good use of Hiroshima s excellent transportation network and
its position on Japan’s Inland Sea, becoming the first firm in the
industry to utilize maritime transport for domestic shipments, such as
to Hokkaido. Contribution to the local community where we work has
always been a core part of Mazda, ever since our birth.
On August 6, 1945, the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, and
Toyo Kogyo ceased all production activities. While damage to
company facilities was minimal, because of our location 5.3 km from
the center, employee morale was devastated. The company
immediately opened all facilities and its stock of medical supplies to
the public, and devoted all of its efforts to rescue activities. The
following day, on the morning of August 7, we opened emergency
contact centers in four locations throughout the city, working to
facilitate communication between employees and their families, and
provide assistance.
For about a year from August 20, 1945, we provided portions of our
corporate facilities to the Hiroshima Prefectural government, the local
court and NHK Hiroshima Broadcasting. For this unfortunate period,
Mazda was the center of government in Hiroshima.

Primele automobile fabricate in Romania

Istoria automobilului romanesc nu are, din pacate, prea multe file.Majoritatea romanilor considera Dacia ca fiind primul automobil fabricat in Romania. Unii stiu ca la sfarsitul anilor 1930 au fost asamblate in Bucuresti automobile Ford.Putini stiu insa ca in urma cu aproape 90 de ani, in 1908 lua fiinta la Arad fabrica de automobile MARTA. Din multitudinea de firme auto aparute in Europa Centrala, inaintea Primului Razboi Mondial, doar cateva au mai rezistat pana in zilele noastre:Steyr, Austro-Daimler, Puch, Raba, Pra
