Honda Plants Back on Full Schedules

Tuesday, 29 Nov 2011 03:47 AM

By Sandy Fitzgerald

Honda’s plants in Ohio are back on full schedules after working under reduced hours for the past month. The automaker’s assembly plants in East Liberty and Marysville were on part-time hours following flooding in Thailand, which cut production for some components for the Accord, Acura, and CR-V products.
The flooding, however, didn’t stop Honda’s launch of the 2012 CR-V crossover planned for today, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Honda’s Russells Point transmission plant and the engine plant in Anna, both also in Ohio, are still on reduced schedules, but are expected to be back at full capacity by Friday, the company said.
The flooding wasn’t the only natural disaster to hit Honda’s production.
The March earthquake and tsunami in Japan slowed Honda’s plants, and just as they were getting back to normal levels, the Thailand flooding hindered production.
Now that both Honda and Toyota have resumed normal schedules, autos sales are picking up, and analysts say December’s sales figures should be the industry’s highest of the year.
