Honda celebrates 5 years of production in Indiana

(Continued)

“Our team in Indiana has accomplished an incredible amount of success in just five short years, and we have overcome many challenges in doing so,” said HMIN President Bob Nelson. “We could not have accomplished any of this without the strong support we have received from our local communities and the great state of Indiana. We are excited about the future here in Greensburg, not only because our global customers embrace the products we make here, but also because Indiana has become our home.”

HMIN also spends more than $2.3 billion each year with more than 50 Tier 1 suppliers located in Indiana.

The Greensburg facility also reflects Honda’s commitment to creating harmony between manufacturing and the environment. HMIN is Honda’s third U.S. plant designed as a zero waste-to-landfill facility and has installed 12 solar panels that were manufactured by Honda Soltec in Japan. HMIN’s Welcome Center building has been designated as LEED certified from the Green Building Certification Institute. LEED stands for leadership in energy and environmental design.

HMIN has also earned EPA’s Energy Star certification. The Indiana plant was one of three Honda plants to receive this certification for 2012. This certification signifies that the plant performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency.

About Honda Operations in North America

Honda began automobile production in the U.S. in 1982 in Marysville, Ohio. It now operates 14 major manufacturing facilities in North America, producing a wide range of Honda and Acura automobiles, automobile engines and transmissions, Honda all-terrain vehicles, and power equipment products such as lawn mowers, mini-tillers and general purpose engines, using domestic and globally sourced parts.

Seven Honda auto plants in the North American region, including four in the U.S., have the capacity to produce 1.63 million automobiles each year. In 2012, 90 percent of the Honda and Acura automobiles sold in the U.S. were produced in North America. This will increase to 1.92 million vehicles per year in 2014, when the sales percentage of locally produced automobiles is expected to rise to more than 95 percent.
