Suzuki and Agos: the agreement renewaled in the name of sustainable mobility
From this year, 100% of the Suzuki car range is hybrid and also Agos is working to promote and enhance the combination of environmental and technological performance. This is a perfect example of a "win-win" strategy, which through Suzuki Finance aims to strengthen market shares thanks to innovative and all-embracing financing solutions, such as Suzuki solutions and Agos Self, or proposals directly reserved for dealers such as stock financing.
Agos has been a financial company on the market for 30 years, in which Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance (61%) and Banco BPM (39%) hold interests. Through its over 200 branches in the territory, Agos offers personal loans, special purpose loans, credit cards, salary-backed loans, leasing and insurance. Short response times, effective problem-solving, special attention to customer care together with a continuous search for innovation are some of the company's strengths, which as a strong point of its strategy is to be "100% human and 100% digital".
Suzuki Motor Corporation is one of the world's leading car, motorcycles and outboard engines manufacturers. In the automotive sector, the company is currently ranked 8th in the world sales ranking (source: JATO). The company was founded in 1909 by Michio Suzuki, who, in the town of Hamamatsu, Japan, built a factory for the production of textile looms. In 1920, the company was deeply reorganized for international sales and was renamed Suzuki Loom Manufacturing Co. In 1954, it changed its name again to Suzuki Motor Corporation Ltd and the following year, in 1955, it produced the first Suzuki branded car, followed in 1970 by Jimny LJ10 series, the first compact 4x4. Since then, its industrial activity in the different sectors has continued its incessant growth, in the motorcycle and marine outboard engine sectors, focusing on values such as reliability, design and innovation.
