Honda’s plant in Greensburg, Indiana, built its 100,000th Civic yesterday. That’s especially impressive considering the plant built its first Civic on October 8, 2008.
“This milestone is based on the commitment our Honda associates in Indiana make every day to build products of the highest quality for our customers,” said Rick Schostek, vice president of Honda Manufacturing Indiana (HMIN). “This is an important achievement for our entire team.”
The plant, which is home to just over 1000 employees, runs only a single shift. The factory builds only Civic Sedans and the CNG-fueled Civic GX model, as Civic coupes — including the hot Si model — are built in Honda’s plant in Alliston, Ontario, Canada, located just outside of Toronto.
HMIN is one of Honda’s seven assembly plants in the U.S. The Japanese automaker has an additional 14 facilities building parts and components on U.S. soil, with two more under construction in South Carolina.
