Honda Hits a MillionPosted: Updated:
After nearly seven years in production, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana LLC has crossed a major milestone. The Greensburg facility, which currently employs 2,300 workers, has produced its one-millionth vehicle. President Bob Nelson says the Civic is headed to a dealership in Michigan. He says the operation has experienced "rapid growth" over the years with support from a ready work force, academic partnerships and cooperation of governors, mayors and the community.

Greensburg, Ind. -- Associates at Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) today celebrated a production milestone of the 1 millionth car built at the plant.
The completion of HMIN's 1 millionth vehicle comes only six years after the start of mass production at the $800 million facility on October 9, 2008.
In addition to making the Civic, HMIN started manufacturing Acura ILX vehicles in 2012 before transferring the production to the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio earlier this year. In total, 65,172 Acura ILX cars were built at HMIN during a three year period -- helping us reach this production milestone.
"We have come a long way from where Honda Manufacturing of Indiana started in 2008 to where we are today," said Bob Nelson, HMIN president. "Our associates have shown tremendous commitment and dedication to get us to this major milestone and we will continue to work to provide our customers with products of the highest quality. These values and beliefs are at the heart of what makes Honda great."
HMIN 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 produced for export to markets outside of North America. HMIN maintains one of the lowest environmental footprints of any automobile plant in Honda's global production network. #Yearof Honda
