It appears that the Mazda Cx-3 has begun production in a brand new plant, as announced recently by Japan-Mazda Motor Corporation, based at Yamaguchi, Japan. Here at MKG 3000, we have no doubt that this vehicle will bring in a great deal of trade for the brand, due to the demand for SUV vehicles currently on the rise.
The benefits of moving production
The Hofu plant has become the newest facility to produce the CX-3, following on from Ujina Plant No.1 in Hiroshima and AutoAlliance Co., Ltd. in Thailand. The huge benefit of moving a proportion of the production means that it will be much easier to manage the high demands of SUV models, which are now sought after worldwide. Despite only moving a small amount of produce to the Hofu plant, the Ujuna plant will still be producing the models on a smaller, domestic basis.
Masatoshi Maruyama, the Managing Executive Officer, claimed: "We're aiming for a production system that gives us more flexibility in terms of plants and models, so we can get our cars to customers around the world as quickly as possible. Achieving this will help create a stronger foundation for our business."
A greater good for the company
Mazda is aiming to achieve a much more flexible production system, by moving production to the necessary plants for the greater good of the company as well as their clients. Mazda aim to produce a 50% crossover of vehicles and meet sales of 1.65 million units. These figures were laid out in a recent business plan, dated from March 2017 - March 2019.
It appears that Mazda are going above and beyond to improve customer service. Their mission is to produce the highest quality vehicles and enable clients to buy vehicles with ease in terms of their manufacturing locations.
