Honda of South Carolina Mfg. Inc. in October built its 2.5 millionth ATV at its Timmonsville, S.C., plant.
“Reaching the milestone of 2.5 million units is a testament to the commitment of our associates and the entire Honda team to produce products that exceed our customer's expectations,” says HSC plant manager Scott McKenzie.
The ATV production milestone occurs just 14 years after Honda began ATV production in the Timmonsville plant. HSC has manufactured many different models of ATVs since its start in 1998, including the FourTrax and SporTrax series, which the plant continues to produce today.
With the flexibility to produce many powersports product models, associates at the Timmonsville plant currently manufacture all Honda ATVs for the North American market and the vast majority for global sales. HSC is also the exclusive North American production site for all utility models.
In addition to manufacturing, Honda has established research and development, and engineering, as well as the company’s export handling operations in South Carolina, along with a parts distribution center and other operations that support product development, manufacturing and sales in North America.
