Honda to move North American leadership to Ohio

DETROIT (AP) — Honda is moving its North American leadership from California to a major factory campus in Ohio.

The Japanese automaker said Friday that about 50 leadership and support jobs will move to Marysville, Ohio, near Columbus.

But the company says its American headquarters and about 2,500 workers will remain in Torrance, Calif., near Los Angeles.

Honda has a huge factory complex in Marysville that makes the top-selling Accord midsize car and other vehicles.

Last year the automaker announced plans to have its sales, manufacturing and research operations North America play a greater role in the global business. The company said that the move to Ohio and several executive changes made Friday are the next step in that process.

Honda also said it would form a new services company based in Marysville.
