Honda of America Mfg., Inc.

Boast, build, and sell: Honda of America Mfg. (HAM) makes vehicles said to be as unconventional as their plants. Its three Ohio plants produce Honda automobiles and engines. The company's Marysville Auto Plant assembles the Acura TL and the Accord coupe and sedan. Its eco-designed East Liberty plant produces the Honda CR-V and Accord Crosstour. Together, HAM's two assembly plants have annual capacity of 680,000 vehicles, which are sold primarily in North America. In addition the company's Anna engine plant (AEP) produces four- and six-cylinder engines and related parts. Marysville is Honda's first plant in the US while AEP is its largest engine plant worldwide. HAM is building an Accura plant in Raymond, Ohio.

Operations

The company's engines, transmissions, and other components are distributed to Honda plants throughout North America, including assembly facilities in Ohio, Indiana, and Canada. Other Honda of America operations include a research and development center, as well as an engineering facility. It is building the $70 million, 184,000 square-foot Performance Manufacturing Center in Raymond, Ohio to begin mass production of the Accura NSX sportscar by 2015. 

The Marysville Plant boasts production of more than 10 million vehicles. It is the first plant outside of Japan to reach this milestone. Honda's plants continue to evolve, increasing their manufacturing efficiency and flexibility, as well as reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Geographic Reach

The company has plants in Marysville, Anna, and East Liberty, Ohio and ships parts and components to other Honda factories in Indiana and Canada.

Strategy

Parent company Honda has been investing heavily in North American manufacturing. It has spent nearly $700 million in recent years upgrading and expanding its US production base. It spent $500 million at Anna in 2013 upgrading the plant to produce Honda's Earth Dreams Technology powertrains, engines, transmissions, and other parts. Earth Dreams Technology is Honda's term for next generation high efficiency, low emission vehicles. Honda spent $150 million expanding production at East Liberty and $23 million in Marysville to increase overall hybrid production by adding the Accura Hybrid Sedan to the line. 

These investments, along with the new $70 million Accura NSX plant being built in Raymond, are all part of Honda's plant to have HAM take on more global manufacturing duties and become an exporter of cars by the end of 2014. It also expects a 70% increase in HAM's export of auto parts in 2014 to Honda plants in South America, Europe, and Asia.
