Honda

GREENSBURG, Ind. (March 22, 2016) – Governor Mike Pence joined executives from Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) today as the company announced plans to invest $52 million in its Greensburg facility in order to enhance job training and add production of the Honda CR-V. The company will create up to 100 new jobs by the end of 2016 to support the new line. 

“Honda has been a great partner to the state of Indiana from the moment the company announced plans to establish a facility in Greensburg in 2006,” said Governor Pence. “I have had the pleasure of meeting with the company’s leadership here in the United States and in Japan, and I am proud that they have once again chosen Indiana for growth.


 

"The automotive industry in Indiana supports more than 100,000 Hoosier jobs, and that number will continue to grow thanks to the commitment of companies like Honda.” 

 


 

HMIN will invest approximately $40 million to enhance the manufacturing flexibility and production capabilities of its existing 1.3 million-square-foot plant in order to add production of the Honda CR-V in early 2017 while maintaining production of the Honda Civic Sedan. The CR-V is a perennial favorite of American car buyers and was Honda’s second-highest selling model in the United States in 2015. 

In addition to the CR-V, HMIN will invest an additional $12.37 million toward its new 20,000-square-foot Associate Resource Center (ARC), which is a career development facility designed to promote the enhancement of HMIN associate manufacturing skills. HMIN will offer more than 1,000 self-guided e-learning classes that range from Honda-specific training to universal skills training.

“This new investment in our Indiana facility will enhance our manufacturing flexibility and better position Honda to meet customer demand for our lineup of fuel-efficient passenger cars and light trucks,” said Bob Nelson, president of HMIN. “Honda is committed to delivering products like the Civic and CR-V that provide outstanding quality and value to our customers, and our associates are key to this success. Our associates are our foundation and this new training facility will provide them with the opportunity to grow and develop their skills.”
