» In 1954, during a hot summer, in a cramped one-room machine shop in Augusta, Georgia, USA, E-Z-GO® was born. Two brothers started with a simple belief that they could build a better golf car that better met the needs of the customer, than any other vehicle then on the market.
» In 1960, E-Z-GO became part of Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT), a global multi-industry company headquartered in Providence, RI. A Fortune 500 company with more than 35,000 employees worldwide and operations in 25 countries, Textron is known for its powerful brands, including E-Z-GO, Cessna, Beechcraft, Hawker, Bell Helicopter, Greenlee, Jacobsen and Kautex, among others.
» In 2009, E-Z-GO received the coveted Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence. That same year, the company's Augusta facility was named one of Industry Week magazine's top 10 manufacturing plants in North America. The company's facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001-certified.
» In 2012, E-Z-GO established the manufacturing base of Asia-Pacific in China, which has been providing more competitive products and high-quality service to the customers in Asia-Pacific as always.
Today, E-Z-GO vehicles are designed and manufactured by Textron Specialized Vehicles, a division of Textron Inc. that also manufactures commercial and industrial utility vehicles, recreational side-by-side UTVs, and ground support equipment for the aviation industry. E-Z-GO stands alongside its sister Textron Specialized Vehicles brands -- Cushman®, Bad Boy® Buggies and TUG™ -- as leaders in the respective industries they serve.
But more than 60 years after the first E-Z-GO vehicle was built in that sweltering one-room shop, there is still that single belief – that we exist to build vehicles and services that exceed the expectations of the customer, better than any other offering on the market. It is the drive to sustain and improve that position – to offer an unparalleled combination of world-class products, advanced technology, manufacturing expertise, and extraordinary service – that leads E-Z-GO to cover new ground.
