Honda Canada Mfg. (HCM) marked a milestone on Feb. 6 with the production of its nine-millionth vehicle at its Alliston, Ontario manufacturing facilities.
Honda Canada Inc., which owns HCM, is also celebrating the sale of its five-millionth vehicle this week after 50 years in operations.
HCM has invested a total of $4.2 billion in the manufacturing of vehicles in Canada for 34 years at two auto plants in Ontario, and at an engine manufacturing plant. The plants have a capacity of approximately 400,000 vehicles and 260,000 four-cylinder engines.
“We are very proud of how we’ve grown, how we’ve invested in Canada and the fact that so many Canadians are part of the Honda family,” says Dave Gardner, president and CEO of Honda Canada Inc. “I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to our success and I’m looking forward to our bright future here in Canada.”
Honda’s first vehicle built in Canada was a Honda Accord Sedan. Today, HCM builds Honda cars and light trucks, including the CR-V and the Civic, Canada’s best-selling passenger car in Canada the past 22 consecutive years.
