Swaraj Mazda Limited is an India based automobile company, established in 1983. The company is jointly owned by the Sumitomo Corporation of Japan and (formerly) Punjab Tractors Limited of India, with a technical collaboration with Isuzu and formerly with Mazda of Japan. Sumitomo upped its stake in the company in 2009 by purchasing all of Punjab Tractors remaining shares, raising their stake to 53.5%. Production began in 1985.
It exports its products to many countries including Nepal, Zambia, Bangladesh, Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, Seychelles, Syria and Jordan.
The company's annual turnover for the year 1997 - 1998 exceeded Rs. 151 crores. It has a dealer network of about 128 dealers spread throughout India. Swaraj Engines and Punjab Scooters are its associate companies.
In June 2006, Swaraj Mazda entered a new Technical agreement with Isuzu Motors, Japan.
In 2009, Swaraj Mazda started to roll out Luxury buses and medium-duty trucks powered by Isuzu Engines from a new plant in Punjab. Plans are to build multi-axle trucks, tractor units and refrigerated trucks within the next three years. They are currently marketed under the Swaraj Mazda Isuzu brand.
Former associate company Punjab Tractors manufactured agricultural tractors and combine harvesters under the Swaraj brand name before selling 64.6% to Mahindra. In 2009, Mahindra and Swaraj Mazda settled a dispute over the use of the Swaraj name, allowing Swaraj Mazda to continue using the name for only two more years.
Swaraj Mazda Limited has informed the Exchange that at the Board Meeting of the Company held on October 1, 2010, the Board of Directors have decided to change the name of the Company from Swaraj Mazda Limited to SML Isuzu Limited.
