TORRANCE, Calif. – An engine for a TRX500 Foreman Rubicon recently rolled off the dyno at Honda of South Carolina (HSC), marking a milestone: It was the 2 millionth engine produced at Honda’s Timmonsville, S.C., factory.
HSC is a 536,150 sq. ft. facility that sits on 625 acres. It is dedicated solely to the production of Honda ATVs. Opened in 1998, the assembly plant added engine production in 2000.
HSC 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, HSC has manufactured more than 2 million Honda ATVs.
“I would like to thank all of our associates for helping us achieve this major milestone,” said Brian Newman, president of HSC. “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.”
