Members of the public had a fun-filled time at the Customer Weekend event organised by Grand Motors Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Mazda vehicles in the country, to commemorate Mazda’s 100th year milestone.

The celebration at the Mazda showroom in Beribi saw guests to a selection mouth-watering delicacies and fun-filled activities such as balloon twisting, a magic show and face painting.

The first 100 visitors who test drove Mazda vehicles received complimentary Mazda 100th Year anniversary gifts.

Grand Motors’ senior management team including Managing Director Frankie Ho, Executive Director Haji Shaiful Rizal bin Pehin Dato Dr Haji Ahmad and Sales Manager Jacqueline Koh also attended.

It has been a long journey for Mazda which marked its 100th anniversary on January 30, 2020. The Hiroshima-born company reached this milestone with the support of its customers, dealers, suppliers and business partners.

In 1920, Mazda originated as a cork producing company in Hiroshima, with the vision to contribute to society through engineering. Practical founder of Mazda, Jujiro Matsuda, had his sights on making a passenger vehicle accessible to all, enabling people to drive themselves anywhere they wanted to go and enriching their lives as a result; marking the beginning of Mazda’s “never-stop challenging” history.

Mazda aims to put people first and cherish its ‘uniqueness of co-creating with others.’ To further strengthen the co-creation and cooperation with all those connected with the company, Mazda continues to challenge itself to create unique products, technologies and experiences dedicated to its customers.
