Honda to Strengthen Mini-vehicle Business

Post by lamphant on Fri Mar 14, 2008 3:21 pm

TOKYO,
Japan, March 11, 2008–
Yachiyo Industry Co., Ltd., a Honda’s consolidated subsidiary in Japan,
announced plans to build a new auto plant which produces both engines
and bodies on land adjacent to its Yokkaichi Factory in the effort to
further strengthen its mini-vehicle business.

Equipped with advanced technologies, the new plant will be a
state-of-the-art, highly flexible, and environmentally-responsible
plant. It will start with engine assembly operations in the first half
of 2009, followed by establishment of the automobile production in the
latter half of 2010.

With the new plant, Yachiyo will establish a highly efficient and high
quality production system by separating production between the existing
and the new plants based on product characteristics. (The new plant
will produce the front-engined models, Life and Zest, with the existing plant concentrating on the midship-engined models, Acty and Vamos.)

The combined annual production capacity of the two plants will be
approximately 240,000 units, which is almost the same as the current
capacity. Total investment related to the establishment of the new
plant is expected to be approximately 50 billion yen.

Once the new plant becomes operational, Honda’s Kumamoto Factory will
transfer the production of mini-vehicle engines to the new plant and
the assembly of mini-vehicle transmissions to Honda’s Suzuka Factory.
Honda is expecting to improve the efficiency of logistics by
concentrating production of key components to the Suzuka area.

With ongoing efforts to strengthen its auto sales structure in Japan
and this new plan to strengthen its mini-vehicle production system,
Honda will strive to further improve the attractiveness of its products
and the company’s competitiveness in the mini-vehicle market where
demand is expected to remain high.
