On November 1, 2012, the associates of Honda of South Carolina Manufacturing drove their 2.5 millionth all-terrain vehicle off of the assembly line. We're proud of all our manufacturing associates and thankful for all the customers that helped us achieve this milestone.
At the ceremony in Timmonsville, SC, HSC also announced that it will add the production of Honda's next generation of side-by-side products by the summer of 2013.
In addition, in July of this year, an ATV engine for Honda’s TRX500 Foreman® Rubicon™ model recently rolled off the dyno at the Honda of South Carolina (HSC) manufacturing plant, and marked a milestone: It was the two millionth engine produced at Honda’s Timmonsville, SC, factory.
HSC is a 536,150-square-foot facility that sits on 625 acres, and it is dedicated solely to the production of Honda ATVs. Opened in 1998, the assembly plant added engine production in the year 2000. HSC is one of 12 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 two million Honda ATVs.
“I would like to thank all of our associates for helping us achieve this major milestone,” said Brian Newman, President 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.”
