Honda investing $40M in Greensburg, adding 300 jobs

Honda Manufacturing of Indiana LLC, a division of Japan-based Honda Motor Co., said on Wednesday that it will invest $40 million in its Greensburg plant and hire 300 employees later this year as it ramps up production of its compact cars.

The plant plans to increase annual production capacity by 50,000, to a total of 250,000 vehicles per year. It produces the Civic sedan and a Civic natural gas model, in addition to the Acura ILX, and now will add a Civic hybrid.

The latest increase in production follows the launch of a second shift last fall that added about 1,000 jobs at the Greensburg facility. The plant has a total of roughly 2,000 employees.

The increase will boost Honda’s North American production to 1.7 million vehicles per year, the company said.
