Honda's new Accord brings investment, jobs to Ohio



Published: Fri, August 17, 2012 @ 3:29 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Honda’s new Accord sedan to be unveiled Monday at a central Ohio plant has led to more than $220 million in investments and more jobs in two other Ohio plants.

Development officials say they are seeing increased business for suppliers, and are hoping for even more economic benefits as production of the new model ramps up at its Marysville plant.

Honda has added about 150 jobs between its Russells Point plant supplying the Accord’s transmission and the Anna plant producing the engine. But economic development officials say they also are seeing more jobs and increased business for Ohio’s Honda suppliers.

The Accord competes in the biggest segment of the U.S. auto market and is often No. 2 on the list of best-selling cars.

Honda has about 13,500 employees in Ohio.

@vindytalk, that is such an idiot comment to make. there are more American family's being able to live because of Honda. the civic, 75% of it is made in America, the Cruze 45% made in America, plus GM has a very corrupt union. Hondas last a whole lot longer then GM cars, GM is way behind in tech, the cars now seem to be gadget part bin cars.

I agree 100% with DaMan, when any car company builds a plant in Ohio or anywhere else in the United States, that puts my neighbors and friends to work. Also, that car company pays taxes on the profits they earn from that plant to the U.S. government. U.S. car companies that have plants in foreign countries don't pay U.S. taxes earned from those plants.

I now drive a Honda Accord made in Marysville, Ohio. I previously drove a Buick Rendezvous for 222,000 miles. However, this "U.S." car was assembled in Mexico. I ask the readers, which car - the Rendezvous or the Accord is more American to buy? I submit that the Accord is more American to buy because my friends and neighbors assembled the car I drive and Honda pays taxes based on the profits earned from the Marysville plant.
