For us, it all started in 2008. That’s when the first Civic rolled off the line here in Greensburg, Indiana.
On that day, something remarkable began. A new facility for achieving was launched that now creates thousands of vehicles every month. Our economic impact has been massive while our environmental impact has been minimized. We’ve strived to be a value to our community, and create value for our customers. Our success is thanks to our exceptional team, and we’re proud to be a part of an exceptional global corporation. And we can think of no better place to build on the track record our company has established than right here in Indiana.
To achieve that goal required thinking that went well beyond the plant’s physical structure. For instance, the lakes that surround the facility act as natural aquatic filters, protecting the nearby farmland from sediments associated with runoff. And we have rehabilitated a vital floodplain with new creek-side forest growth that will enhance biodiversity.
That level of concern we have for the natural environment is equaled by our concern for the work environment. The vehicles we build in Greensburg are the result of an all-encompassing philosophy of quality. Measured in more ways than just fit and finish, quality is central to our operation. It can be found in our use of electric motors instead of hydraulics to reduce noise and odor. Our paint spraying systems were designed to produce less airborne loss. Both of these innovations reflect a systematic approach we have taken to improve the quality of our working environment.
At Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, we are honored to produce the Civic Sedan, the car that helped establish the Honda reputation for quality and efficiency, the Honda CR-V, the first SUV built at the plant since we began production, the Insight Hybrid and CR-V Hybrid. But we are equally committed to our roles as corporate citizens and environmental stewards in Greensburg and across our state.
