This comes as a part of a $23 million investment by Honda to enable the Marysville, Ohio plant to build the 2014 Accord Hybrid. The vehicle will feature two motors — a gasoline-powered motor and an electric motor — and part of the preparations the plant must undergo involve lengthening the main assembly line and creating addition space for more parts and further assembly.
“Expansion is underway,” said company spokesman Ron Lietzke, “and as we get into spring and summer we’ll start trial production and start hiring new associates.”
Honda has a well-established manufacturing presence in Ohio. In addition to the Marysville plant, there’s an assembly plant in East Liberty, a facility dedicated to building engines in Anna, and a transmission facility in Russells Point. Raymond, Ohio features the automaker’s largest research and development center outside of Japan.
It was announced in November that Honda would invest an addition $200 million in the facilities in Anna and Russells Point, which will create at least 200 additional manufacturing jobs. Over the past three years, Honda has invested over $800 million in its Ohio facilities, indicating the automaker’s support of American manufacturing.
