We are proud to have Honda right here in Ohio with campuses both in Marysville and Anna. Speaking volumes about Ohio’s business-friendly climate and talented workforce, Honda recently announced plans to expand operations by investing an additional $215 million in the Buckeye State. The partnership between Ohio and Honda is a formula for success that is bringing jobs to our state. The Dispatch has more below:
“For more than 30 years, what has been good for Honda has been good for Ohio. Last week, the Japanese auto maker — which first came to Ohio to make motorcycles in Marysville 31 years ago — announced plans to invest another $215 million, on top of the $1 billion it has invested in the Buckeye State in the past three years.”
“This continuing success story, coupled with Honda’s new, high-profile projects in Ohio, do more to convince other companies of Ohio’s business-friendly climate than could any government-backed marketing pitch. Honda is even entrusting its highly anticipated high-end Acura NSX sports car to its Ohio team, announcing recently that the car will be built at a plant near Marysville.
“It’s about people,” said Hidenobu Iwata, president and CEO of Honda of America Manufacturing, in announcing details of the company’s Acura NSX plans in May. “The location of this facility is in the midst of one of the greatest collections of engineering talent in the world.”
Great talent, a great company and a great location all go hand in hand. Honda, Ohio and Ohio’s workers continue to be a winning combination.”
