Honda Manufacturing of Indiana announces leadership changes

RUSHVILLE — GREENSBURG – Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) announced that Bob Nelson is the company’s new president, effective today, April 1, 2013. As president, Nelson is responsible for total HMIN operations.

Nelson most recently served as senior vice president at HMIN. He has been with Honda for 26 years, starting his career at Honda of America Mfg., Inc. (HAM) in Ohio. Nelson’s career with Honda includes several assignments in purchasing, including three years in Japan, and Vice President of North American Purchasing for Honda.

Nelson replaces Jun Nishimoto as president. Nishimoto will move to Honda’s Saitama Factory in Japan as general manager of Automobile Production Supervisory Unit. Nishimoto joined HMIN as president in 2010, after spending nearly 30 years with Honda.

During his tenure as president at HMIN, the Greensburg plant launched the new model Civic, added a second shift, introduced the new Acura ILX and the plant increased its production capacity from 800 to 1,000 vehicles a day.

In addition, with Nelson’s new assignment as president, Toshikazu Kashida, who is currently vice president will assume the role as senior vice president.

Honda Manufacturing Indiana, LLC (HMIN) in Greensburg, Ind., became Honda’s fourth auto plant in the U.S. and its seventh in North America when it began production of Civic sedans in October 2008. With employment over 2,000 and capital investment exceeding $800 million, HMIN primarily manufactures automobiles for the United States, with some Civics and ILXs produced for export to markets outside of North America. HMIN started operations as a zero-waste-to-landfill factory, meaning no waste is sent to landfills, and maintains one of the lowest environmental footprints of any automobile plant in Honda’s global production network.
