MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Japanese car company Honda is now exporting more cars than it imports — and many of them are assembled at two Ohio plants.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1gqinJq ) reports that the assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty — both northwest of Columbus — also broke annual production records last year.
The automaker exported 108,705 vehicles in 2013 and imported 88,537.
Of the total exports, nearly two-thirds — 69,680 vehicles — were assembled in the Ohio plants. They went to 40 countries.
The Honda Accord is assembled at Marysville, and its top crossover, the CR-V, is assembled at East Liberty.
Honda has about 13,700 employees in Ohio. In addition to the assembly plants, it has an engine plant in Anna, a transmission plant in Russells Point and other offices.
