Fuji Heavy Industries | Subaru (Japan)
Fuji Heavy Industries is best-known for its main business, the automobile brand Subaru, although it also makes a variety of other products including forestry and agricultural machinery, military and commercial aircraft. Its passenger car brands include the Outback, Legacy and Impreza as well as a range of minivehicles for its domestic market, including the Stella and Pleo. A six-year alliance with General Motors was wound down in 2005, and instead Subaru now has a close working relationship with domestic giant Toyota. Performance has improved significantly as a result, and FHI has reported record sales and profits for the past four years, underpinned by excellent performance in its biggest market by far, the US. The company will finally change its name to Subaru Corporation on its centenary in April 2017.
