History of Nagoya Suzuki
There was 'one' Suzuki company before the 2nd World War. After the war, a entity created by the US and allies called GHQ (for General Headquarters) dismantled some parts of 'Imperial' Japan and some companies were closed or restructured.
In Suzuki's case, the company was separated into - the Suzuki Violin Company, changing to the Kiso Suzuki Violin Company and the Suzuki Violin Manufacturing Company came to be called the Nagoya Suzuki Violin Company.
They manufactured violins and guitars but stopped guitar production in 1989.
Today they are still a well-known maker of quality violins.
Nagoya is also the home town of Sadao Yairi and the original home town of the Kazuo Yairi factory, in fact the origin of both of these companies lies with the violin workshop of Sadao Yairi who learnt his trade at the Suzuki factory during 1923 to 1932.
