The V-Twin assembly expansion will consolidate all Subaru industrial engine production to the Fuji Heavy Industries factory (shown here) in Tokyo, Japan.Subaru Industrial Power Products announced April 20 that it will expand the assembly of its V-Twin engine line, and move production from the current Robin Manufacturing facility in Hudson, Wis., to Subaru’s existing facility in Tokyo, Japan. The move will consolidate all engine production to Japan.
Brad Murphy, vice-president of sales and marketing, said the move will increase V-Twin engine production capacity, and will be accompanied by a larger engine inventory at its North American headquarters, located in Lake Zurich, Ill.
“The decision to increase production capacity in Japan signifies a step forward for the V-Twin line, as we’re expanding production and increasing our inventory here in North America,” Murphy said. “This will improve the efficiency of production, and allows for enhanced service and value to our North American OEMs.”
Murphy continued, “For years, we’ve been producing V-Twins in Japan for worldwide distribution, and now we’re simply expanding on that experience and increasing production. At Subaru, we hold ourselves to the highest quality standards, ensuring our customers continually receive superior technology and exceptional service. The V-twins are no exception.”
