A DRIVING FORCE
SINCE 1982

Leading by example from Day One.

​​It’s been more than 30 years since the first U.S.-made Honda Accord rolled off the line at our Marysville manufacturing plant in November 1982. Back then we had only a dream to guide us, yet we always knew we had the potential for greatness.

The reason was simple: Our flagship vehicle, the Honda Accord, was a game changer. Small, light, compact, stylish and economical – it was all the things that every other car on the road wasn’t. It would redefine America’s love affair with the automobile and lay the foundations for all that was to follow.

Over the years the quality of our products and the unstoppable spirit of our highly skilled Ohio associates have allowed us to continually set new standards of engineering excellence.

Today, our operations include eleven state-of-the-art plants in six Ohio communities, employing more than 13,700 people and contributing millions of dollars to the Ohio economy every year.

What began as a handshake between Soichiro Honda and Ohio Governor James Rhodes in 1977 has grown into an Ohio operation of global stature and influence, a creative worldwide leader responsible for the launch of Honda models throughout the world.

That’s some success story, and it’s just the beginning.
