Honda recently celebrated two historic moments at its Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio. The first was the construction of its 20 millionth vehicle made in the United States. The second event was the construction of its 10 millionth Accord in the United States. All four American Honda vehicle plants and two powertrain facilities in the country celebrated the momentous occasion.

The plant located in Marysville, Ohio has marked several firsts for the automaker. It was the site where the first Honda Accord was manufactured in the United States, back on November 1, 1982. On that same date, the facility achieved the status of being the first Japanese automaker to manufacture vehicles inside the United States. Today, Honda has manufacturing facilities in East Liberty and Marysville, Ohio; Greensburg, Indiana; and Lincoln, Alabama. Eleven different Honda models are made in the United States. A new facility is under construction next to the plant in Marysville and will be called the Performance Manufacturing Center. That facility will be the only one in the world to make the future Acura NSX.

“We are deeply aware that our ability to reach this milestone results from the trust that 20 million customers have placed in our products, and we appreciate their support over the past three decades,” said Hidenobu Iwata, who is president and CEO of Honda of America Manufacturing as well as head of Honda’s North American manufacturing. “We also value the commitment made by tens of thousands of associates at Honda and our hundreds of suppliers in the U.S. who build products of the highest quality for our customers.”
