Club Car names Subaru Power Products ‘Supplier of the Year’

Subaru Industrial Power Products, a maker of small engines, is Club Car’s top supplier for the year. Subaru received the George H. Inman Supplier of the Year award for excellence in cooperation, product quality and support.

“Club Car engineers spent a year researching what other major engine manufacturers offered before partnering with Subaru,” said David Woodward, Club Car product manager.

The engine features electronic fuel injection, capacitive discharge ignition, hemispherical heads and a case-hardened steel timing chain to enhance reliability. And Club Car says the engine’s splash lubrication system eliminates the need for oil filters, simplifying maintenance and reducing environmental waste.

“Receiving Club Car’s award is an honor,” said David Frank, Subaru Power Products vice president of sales and marketing. “We take pride in the quality of product we produce and the level of service we provide.”

Club Car, the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel, zero-emission electric vehicles, partnered with Subaru to design a sophisticated new engine that has more horsepower, higher efficiency and lower maintenance costs than pushrod engines used in competitive vehicles.

“We are proud to present Subaru with one of our top awards,” said Eric Powell, Club Car director of strategic resourcing. “Their exceptional warranty and 100-percent on-time delivery rate allowed us to support a substantial production surge and further expand our market position.”

Subaru Industrial Power Products is a subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industries of Tokyo.
