Honda begins hiring process for new Indiana plant
Greensburg, Indiana – Honda has announced that it will begin hiring for its new US$550 million auto plant, which is being constructed near Greensburg, Indiana, and will ultimately hire 2,000 people. The company announced in June 2006 that it would build a new plant with an annual production capacity of 200,000 vehicles. Site preparation is well under way.
Mass production of a 2009 model-year vehicle is scheduled to begin in fall 2008 at the facility. Honda has not identified the vehicle to be made, except to say that it will feature fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines manufactured in Anna, Ohio. The vast majority of parts for the vehicles will be manufactured by Honda’s base of U.S. suppliers.
