Shelbyville too close to Honda for some suppliers

January 12, 2007

The Japanese auto maker is building a $550 million assembly plant in adjoining Decatur County.

However, Shelby County, which is southeast of Indianapolis, plans to recruit Honda workers to live in the county partly by emphasizing easy access to Indianapolis and Cincinnati.
