Numbers can't tell the whole story.
It's only natural that when you deal in mass production, numbers tend to be the most tangible method of comprehension. But in all that math it's easy to lose sight of what really defines us. Our associates. We are much more than Honda's seventh North American auto assembly plant, we are individuals that together do great things on a massive scale. Soichiro Honda understood the importance of the individual when he founded the company all those years ago. His creed of Respect for the Individual still resonates clearly. In this About Us section we've included the pertinent facts and figures (they are listed below), but it's the associates who get top billing. They drive our quality, which in turn drives consumer desire for our products. And that makes all things possible, like our commitment to improving our communities and neighborhoods.
