  • Mazda North American Operations oversees the sales, marketing, parts and customer service support of Mazda vehicles in the United States and Mexico through nearly 600 dealers; five of which are located in Orange County. Mazda’s global headquarters are located in Hiroshima, Japan.
  • Mazda has called Irvine home since 1987, when it completed the construction of the first high-rise building in Irvine. The location still stands today, at 7755 Irvine Center Drive. You can see the building from the windows of the new location at 200 Spectrum Center Drive.
  • Mazda’s vehicle designers developed the overall look and feel of the interior of Mazda’s new HQ. With the same blank sheet approach that they take to vehicle design, they were able to create an environment within the new building that evokes Mazda’s brand philosophy of Hashiru Yorokobi (exhilaration, joy and well-being).
  • The physical attributes of the space were developed by collaborating with the 350 employees at the corporate offices. Through regularly collected surveys and solicited employee feedback, employees provided valuable insight into everything from lifestyle needs and remote work practices, to laptop preferences and desk chairs.
  • A complimentary coffee shop located on the 8th floor of the building, called Caffé Three Waves – paying homage to Mazda’s unique culture originating from Hiroshima, Japan – utilizes a cold brew technique from Kyoto, Japan.
  • Each month, on average, 18 Mazda employees celebrate more than 10 years of employment at MNAO.
