Honda of South Carolina Produces Two Millionth ATV Engine
Honda’s South Carolina facility recently reached a major production milestone, rolling its two millionth ATV engine off the production floor. The milestone engine was for Honda’s TRX500 Foreman Rubicon model.
Honda South Carolina, which is located in Timmonsville, SC, features a 536,150-square-foot facility that sits on 625 acres and is dedicated solely to the production of Honda ATVs. Opened in 1998, the assembly plant added engine production in the year 2000. Honda South Carolina is one of nine major plants in the U.S., and has the ability to produce 266,000 ATVs and 310,000 engines annually. Since 1998, the facility has manufactured more than two million Honda ATVs.
“I would like to thank all of our associates for helping us achieve this major milestone,” says Brian Newman, president of Honda South Carolina. “This facility is unique among all Honda plants in the U.S. as it is dedicated solely to the production of Honda ATVs that are sold not only here in the U.S. but also around the world. This is American manufacturing at the highest Honda quality level, and we take great pride in this milestone.”
