Honda to expand Timmonsville plant, add 65 jobs

Posted: Updated:

TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Honda is moving production of its two-seat all-terrain vehicles from a plant in Mexico to its Timmonsville facility, adding 65 new jobs.

The company made the announcement Thursday at the same time they celebrated making 2.5 million all-terrain vehicles at the South Carolina plant.

The new line of two-seat vehicles should be in place next summer. Honda is investing an additional $27 million in the Timmonsville plant, which opened in 1998 and has exclusively made ATVs.

Honda says the market for all-terrain vehicles that seat more than one person is growing in the U.S.

Honda says the Mexican plant will be converted to making ATVs to serve the expanding market for those vehicles in that country.
