In Ohio, Honda has assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty, builds engines at its Anna facility and transmissions at Russells Point. It also operates a research and development center in Raymond, the largest such facility outside of Japan.

In November, the company announced it would make more than $200 million in new investments at the Anna and Russells Point plants, creating at least 200 new manufacturing jobs. Honda says it has announced investments of more than $800 million at its Ohio facilities in the past three years. The company employs 13,500 Ohioans.

Honda reached a milestone last month when its 1 millionth vehicle built for export, a silver Accord, rolled off the line in Marysville. It came 25 years after the first U.S.-made Honda, also an Accord and also built at the Marysville plant, was exported to an overseas market.
