In an effort to meet growing demand for side-by-side vehicles, Honda South Carolina completed a $45 million expansion project in 2018 that added 250 new jobs and 115,000 square feet of space. The project included a new weld area, a new paint line to enhance quality and color variations, along with new buildings and expansions to improve production efficiency. The plant also added automated guided carriers and lift assist devices to support quality, logistics, safety and ergonomic improvements for associates.
"Over the last 20 years, Honda in South Carolina has evolved from a small ATV manufacturing plant, to a world-class team that can produce a complex model like the Honda Talon sport side-by-side," said Gary Mabrey, president of HSC. "This expansion and innovation was made possible through the efforts of the incredible team of associates who are dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers."
