Suzuki New Zealand To Take Over Suzuki Marine Distribution


Barry 2018-07-19

From September 1, Suzuki New Zealand Limited will once again be the distributors of Suzuki marine engines.

The distribution and marketing of marine outboard motors was previously done through Haines Suzuki in Australia, but the New Zealand subsidiary of Suzuki worldwide now takes over that responsibility for this corner of the planet.

"It's huge and we've recently employed extra staff to help cope," said Wanganui's Simon Meade, Suzuki New Zealand general manager of motorcycle/ATV and marine marketing.

The first confirmed sale of Suzuki outboards by Suzuki New Zealand has been made to Coastguard Wanganui, enabling them to upgrade their craft's power-plant from the current DF150 to new model DF175APX.

With a number of high-profile rescues associated with this organisation, the choice of Suzuki as an engine supplier is a strong endorsement of how the coastguard organisation regards the reliability and performance of these four-stroke engines.

Tom Peck, the CEO of Suzuki New Zealand Limited, said he was excited to have Suzuki Marine join the already successful motorcycle and ATV business and motor vehicle network.

"With our motorcycle brand holding the number one position in the New Zealand market since 1998, and a very strong market share in the small motor vehicle segment, we are looking forward to promoting Suzuki Marine from September 1," Peck said.
