Honda Builds 30 Millionth Automobile in North America
Honda hit a major milestone earlier this month when the company built its 30 millionth automobile in North America. The Japanese automaker first began producing vehicles in Marysville, OH, on November 1, 1982. Since then, Honda has grown to establish manufacturing plants in six North American cities. With $17 billion invested in auto, engine and transmission facilities across North America and the manpower of more than 28,000 associates, Honda was able to produce more than 97 percent of all the cars, trucks and SUVs it sold in the U.S. last year right here in North America.
“The production of 30 million automobiles in North America is the result of the support we have received from our customers and the communities that serve as a strong foundation of our operations in North America,” said Takuji Yamada, president of Honda North America, Inc. in a release. “This is an incredible achievement by Team Honda – including the tremendous dedication and teamwork of our associates, past and present, together with our suppliers, dealers and business partners – all focused on creating joy for our customers.”
