10 millionth Honda rolls off Ohio assembly line



Published: Tue, July 20, 2010 @ 2:59 p.m.

MARYSVILLE, Ohio — The Marysville Auto Plant has become the first Honda plant outside Japan to manufacture 10 million vehicles with the production this morning of a Honda Accord Sedan.

Honda began local auto production in November 1982 at the Marysville plant with an Accord Sedan, and has continued producing that model along with various others.

Identified with a magnetic sign on its hood, associates followed progress of the vehicle in production until it came off the assembly line as a completed product. The milestone Accord was immediately moved into the plant’s West Cafeteria for display alongside the first generation of the Accord produced at the plant.

“Production of this 10 millionth automobile is the result of the shared commitment to our customers, demonstrated over the past 28 years by all of the associates who have worked at the Marysville Auto Plant through the years,” said Hidenobu Iwata, president and CEO of Honda of America Mfg., and leader of Honda’s production operations in North America.

The unions are for anything that promotes more unionism. That includes card check, GM bailouts, and socialism. As long as the unions benefit, they don't care at whose expense.

Thomas53....Japanese auto makers have been subsidized by the Japanese government for decades and extremely high tariffs are placed on imports to Japan and the auto workers in Japan are unionised.

Only their American autoworkers are paid substandard wages and benefits.
