Honda starts exporting cars from Greensburg

The Honda plant in southern Indiana that started production last year is now building cars for export from the United States.

Company officials announced today that the export of Honda Civics built at the Greensburg factory began last week
to Mexico, along with 22 South American and Caribbean nations and U.S. territories.

The factory opened in October
2008 and has produced more than 50,000 Civics.

Honda Manufacturing of Indiana vice president Rick Schostek says
the export production demonstrates the company’s commitment to the continued growth of the Greensburg factory.

Honda
has about 950 workers on one shift at the plant and plans a second shift of 1,000 workers when the economy improves.
