10 millionth Accord rolls off Honda line in Ohio

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Honda is marking a big milestone at
its Marysville plant in central Ohio as the automaker celebrates the
completion of 10 million American-made Accords.
Honda says it
reached that mark with a vehicle that came off the assembly line
Thursday at Marysville, which was Honda’s first auto plant in the U.S.
The first Honda Accord was made there in November 1982.
Honda says
the Marysville facility and its three other auto manufacturing plants
have produced a total of 20 million vehicles in the U.S. The other
plants are in East Liberty, Ohio; Lincoln, Ala.; and Greensburg, Ind.
The
company says that it has invested about $1.6 billion in its U.S. auto
plants over the past three years to expand production and implement new
technologies and manufacturing systems.
