Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI), the company that has been manufacturing Subarus all this while has finally changed its company name to Subaru Corporation with effect from April 1st.
To mark the change, a renaming ceremony was held last week for employees at the company’s Head Office in Ebisu and also at three other domestic facilities.
To add more excitement to the whole occasion, the new Impreza and a life-sized scale model of the 412EPI helicopter (built by the company) were displayed at the Head Office ceremony to symbolize Subaru’s commitment to growth as a distinctive global brand in the automotive and aerospace industries.
Last but not the least, commemorative leaflets and newly produced group collar pins were distributed to employees.
