’Business as usual’ for Suzuki in Canada

It remains “business as usual” for Suzuki in Canada despite a decision by its counterpart in the United States to discontinue auto sales and seek court protection from its creditors while it focuses on other products.

RICHMOND HILL, Ont. — It remains “business as usual” for Suzuki in Canada despite a decision by its counterpart in the United States to discontinue auto sales and seek court protection from its creditors while it focuses on other products.

“Suzuki Canada has no current plans to discontinue automobile sales in Canada nor are we contemplating any form of court-supervised restructuring as they have done in the United States,” Suzuki Canada spokesman Bill Porter said in an interview Tuesday.

Porter said Suzuki Canada is emphazing the fact that the two companies are not connected and that the news in the United States is not expected to have any impact on Suzuki’s Canadian operations.

“Our sales are up over last year so its business as usual in Canada, that’s the message we’ve given to our dealers and certainly to our customers as well. No change at all.”

American Suzuki Motor Corp. filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy law and said it will cease selling automobiles in the U.S. as part of a plan to restructure its business.
