Honda breaks ground for transmission plant in Georgia
Tallapoosa, Georgia – Honda Precision Parts of Georgia marked the groundbreaking of its new US$100 million transmission plant. The company has moved up its starting date from fall 2006 to spring 2006, and at full capacity will employ approximately 400 workers and produce up to 300,000 automatic transmissions per year.
The facility will be Honda’s 13th major plant in North America and will initially provide parts for Honda Odyssey minivans and Pilot SUVs, which are built in Lincoln, Alabama, about 100 km west of the Tallapoosa plant. Currently, transmissions are produced in Honda’s factory in Ohio.
