Also, Honda is looking to open a heritage center that highlights the manufacturer’s history in North America, as well as new office space for the new Honda North America Services in Marysville, Ohio.
Approximately $180 million will go onto the Anna Engine Plant, where the automaker is planning to expand capabilities in aluminum die casting and engine parts production related to the new Honda Earth Dreams Technology engines and transmissions.
"For the 21st century of manufacturing, we believe our success will be defined by the successful interaction between our associates and technology," said Rick Schostek, senior vice president of Honda North America. "Even as we introduce more sophisticated technologies in our products and in our plants, we are working to ensure that our associates are equipped with the skills required for the manufacturing requirements of the future. We view this investment in Honda people as critical to our future success."
