Mazda, a car manufacturer with an exciting history

Mazda – the name is a permanent fixture on the car market.  However, what most people do not know is that, when it was founded, the company had absolutely nothing to do with cars, but started off producing a cork substitute. As the world market was nursing its demand for natural cork, the company had to rethink its direction. When it set machine construction in its sights, it laid the foundations for what is now one of the world’s most famous carmakers.
